The South Carolina Independent School Association sponsored a workshop to help staffs of member schools become mentor teachers.

Cindy Folsom, lower school principal, and April Vail, assistant principal, participated in the one-day training program. Both are on the staff at Coastal Christian Preparatory in Mount Pleasant.

“In recent surveys, a high percentage of novice SCISA teachers reported not being part of an effective mentoring program,” Larry Watt, SCISA executive director, said. “Trained mentors can make a difference. The purpose of the workshop was to provide our member schools with a cadre of mentor teachers ready to be assigned as soon as new teachers are hired.”

SCISA is a non-profit, voluntary association of over 110 independent schools serving more than 37,000 teachers and students.

Founded in 1965, it establishes accreditation standards, coordinates academic and athletic competition and provides professional development.
