Mentoring Program

The One-to-One Mentoring Program pairs beginning teachers (first, second, and third year) with experienced teachers for regular mentoring experiences (observations, discussions, etc.). Pairs will be assigned by the Mentorship Co-Chairs based on area of music instruction and geographic region. Pairs will be made prior to the start of the 2017-18 school year and will continue with new sign-ups received after the start of the school year.

Beginning Teacher Workshop

OkMEA will host a Beginning Teacher Workshop that coincides with the regular Fall Conference. On October 18th, a welcome dinner, social events, and sessions will be offered to all new music teachers at the Aloft Hotel. Oklahoma music teachers representing all subject areas and stages of their careers will lead sessions. Mike Plunkett will also outline procedures and answer questions pertaining to OSSAA-sanctioned music events. All participating on Wednesday will then attend the regular Fall Conference at OCU on Thursday.
