Great Lakes Teacher Mentor Project

Great Lakes Teacher Mentor Project

Teachers with a passion for the Great Lakes are sharing their expertise across the region with other teachers in a program that benefits the educators and their students. The mentor program, organized by the Center for Great Lakes Literacy (or CGLL), is funded through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.

Wisconsin is home to five teacher mentor/mentee pairs. They’re organized by Anne Moser, senior special librarian and education coordinator with Wisconsin Sea Grant. She explains that 2022 is the first formal year of the program and that it’s growing.
