Note on Midterm Evaluations

The midterm evaluation form is a Word document included in your Mentor Teacher packet: you should have received this from your student or field coordinator, but the packet is also available in the mentor handbooks. The midterm evaluation narrative should be completed in written form, with a hard copy either:

  • given to your teacher preparation candidate.
  • or given to the field supervisor to bring to the office.
  • or mailed directly to: Teaching and Learning Department, 401 Fulton St. W, 419C Richard M. DeVos Center, Grand Rapids, MI 49504

Learning Modules for Mentor Teachers

These modules are designed to be self-paced, independent learning experiences that will guide you through the internship process and help familiarize you with the various requirements of hosting an Intern from GVSU. We hope that you will utilize this important resource. While this training is not required, it will benefit all parties involved. You will receive a certificate of completion after you finish all modules.
