The goal of the TSC Endorsement is to train exemplary teachers to mentor and support beginning teachers, to supervise student teachers, and to support colleagues seeking to improve performance through reflection and modification of practice.

The blended format allows participants the flexibility of an online format blended with face-to-face sessions that promote interaction and reflection. Most job-embedded coursework will be completed online as candidates interact with a protégé and with colleagues in the school setting. Courses begin August 2019.

The two-course endorsement takes place over two semesters and is designed to assist TSC candidates in the acquisition of skills and competencies necessary to meet the needs and concerns of beginning teachers, student teachers, and colleagues. In the first course, candidates learn the skills; during the internship in the second course, candidates apply the knowledge and skills learned in the first course.

Candidates must hold a valid, renewable teaching certificate, have excellent interpersonal skills, demonstrate a positive attitude toward the teaching profession, be willing to commit personal time in the support of beginning teachers, and be recommended by the local school principal. The school district must confirm that the candidate will be assigned a protégé and serve as a coach, teacher leader, or mentor during the second semester. 

To enroll in the program, submit an online application and required documents (found below) by May 28, 2019. Read the Application Process for application directions, cost and requirements.
