In our latest K12xPotential magazine, we shared some information about what’s new for the upcoming school year, including new opportunities for parents to connect. Many of these programs can’t reach their full potential without the help of experienced K12 parents.
Many first-year Learning Coaches benefit greatly when they are able to connect with other parents that have "been there, done that". With that in mind, we created Mentor Circles, an online weekly gathering where first-year and experienced learning coaches can create friendships and find wonderful support networks.
For all of you veteran Learning Coaches, take a minute and recall the tremendous challenges you faced during your first year as a Learning Coach, especially during those first few weeks. Now, think about how valuable it would have been to be able to reach out to an experienced Learning Coach for advice and support whenever you needed it? I bet you would have experienced less frustration and stress as you learned how to incorporate online education into your family’s life. Our Mentor Circles provide an opportunity to offer support and guidance to newer Learning Coaches.
