Core French Literacy Mentors welcome the opportunity to provide on-site instructional support to French teachers, grades 4-12, in Core French, and Intensive French. Since French pull-out PD has been greatly reduced this year, the on-site support of literacy initiatives presented in past years will be a priority.  This support will be provided following the CCRSB Mentor Program Framework, with emphasis being on the coaching aspect, with a limited number of substitute days available for collaboration and consulting.  Requests for support may be teacher initiated or principal initiated (specific groups, ex: new teachers, whole staff etc.).
