Teacher Training Systems for Your School [7FMS Ep. #56]

by Daniel Patterson


In mid-2022, Nate asked himself this question:

“What would happen if he changed the way his school trained and supported its teaching team?”

That is the topic of today’s episode…

We’re going to explore the way BMF used to train its teachers…

And how they are training teachers today.

Plus, we look at the opportunity that every school has to utilize its veteran teaching staff to mentor the younger generation of teachers… and how to actually make that happen.

There is a lot of practical wisdom and actionable ideas in this episode.
