Mentoring & On-the-Job Experiences at Clarke

Clarke educators remove limitations and make possibilities real

We spend each day teaching students the skills to succeed in a hearing world. These same educators are committed to helping young professionals become master teachers and advance their careers. While mentoring opportunities and experiences may vary in formality across Clarke programs and sites, all professionals, whether new to the field or seasoned veterans, participate in professional learning opportunities to stay informed of new research, technology and more.
