Online Mentor Teacher Training Program to begin June 7


An online Mentor Teacher Training Program will be offered through Northwestern State University’s Office of Electronic and Continuing Education and the NSU School of Education starting June 7.

This Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) approved mentor teacher training offered by the NSU School of Education prepares participants to earn the Louisiana Mentor Teacher micro-credential.  The two-course training is offered online on a traditional semester basis, enrolling new participants each term.  Participants can work toward earning the elementary ELA, secondary math or universal mentor teacher distinction, receiving guidance and support from a current practitioner who is Louisiana mentor teacher certified.

In addition to the training, participants must pass the BloomBoard assessment in order to earn the micro-credential.  The cost of the assessment is not included in the course fees.

For more information or to register, please visit or email or call (318) 357-6355. Should there be a group of teachers from one district enrolling, please contact the Office of Electronic and Continuing Education for additional details.
