Responsibilities


Mentors Teachers are K-12 teachers at schools in the DC area which have a partnership with the university. During a given GW semester, a Mentor Teacher will supervise a GW Student’s visit to a partner school to observe and/or teach a series of lessons.

When GW Students teach, Mentor Teachers will guide students to develop lessons based on a provided STEM lesson topic, and desired performance objectives which are guided by a Mentor Teacher’s own teaching goals and curriculum. A Mentor Teacher will review the final lessons that the students have created, and provide written feedback to adjust and improve their lesson before teaching in the classroom. The students, after developing these lessons, will then teach three (3) lessons at the school, as the Mentor Teacher observes the teaching, and gives a written evaluation to these students. Mentor Teachers will ensure that GW students are supervised at all times, and do not have any unsupervised access to any school students.  Interested teachers should contact Alicia Bitler, Master Teacher, at [email protected].

Mentor Compensation
 

GW will pay a Mentor an honorarium of one hundred dollars ($100.00) for each student a Mentor is assigned in a single GW semester. A Mentor shall not be assigned more than six (6) students, and will not receive an honorarium of more than six hundred dollars ($600.00), in a single GW semester. In addition, all first-time Mentors will receive a one-time honorarium of fifty dollars ($50.00) to attend the GW-sponsored training session that shall occur before a Mentor begins to work with any Students. GW will directly pay honorariums to Mentors at the end of each GW semester upon completion of services.
