Mentoring + Coaching
Made Manifest LLC has extensive experience working alongside teachers and the students in classrooms across the tri-state area.
After several mini-lessons on focused technology, teachers will work on a related project plan during the workshops and we will then mentor them in the classroom and online to implement the plan. This model has proven extremely effective in giving teachers the confidence they need to "move to the next level of learning."
