This program leads participants through an active roadmap for reimagining their schools’ approach to teacher SuperVision and growth-focused feedback. Develop new models of teacher mentorship and support to navigate and embrace post-remote shifts in teaching and learning. Program facilitators, Karen Pavliscak, Associate Head of School for Teaching and Learning, and Maggie Cenan, Math Department Chair at the Archer School for Girls were part of a leadership team that engaged in a multi-year process to craft a more dynamic and responsive system to stretch teachers’ growth edges and support their well-being. This ongoing program includes two in-person learning labs, a hybrid collaboration session, and a remote one-on-one coaching opportunity.  Participants will be able to fast-track the research, design, and implementation process to develop their own clear and purposeful teacher SuperVision and feedback system that aligns with their school’s unique mission and culture.

Participants will:

  • Reflect on their current systems of mentoring teachers and discern what is working and what could evolve.
  • Observe the model in action and consider opportunities to adapt the model for their schools.
  • Develop a roadmap to implement an updated system that sustains teachers’ growth.
  • Engage in one-one coaching to discuss challenges unique to their school communities.


This program is designed for Associate Heads, Directors of Teaching and Learning, Division Directors, Deans of Faculty, and Department Chairs.

CATDC and Archer School for Girls will be working together to do all we can to ensure your health and safety during our in-person session, monitoring closely nationwide, state, and local updates and recommendations. We ask that you do not attend if you are infected with Covid, have Covid symptoms, or have had close contact with someone who is infected in the last 10 days.

Starting February 2023, we will no longer check vaccination status at the first session of our workshops, but we strongly encourage all CATDC participants to be fully vaccinated.

Given the nature of our in-person programs which gather individuals together from a variety of schools and regions, CATDC may require or strongly recommend masking indoors and/or testing on a program-by-program basis.  A host school/venue may require additional protocols which we will communicate to participants via email in a timely fashion prior to a program or session.  All Covid-related refund requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation.
