MMCI Sessions

NOEEN was recently awarded Supplemental Improvement funding from the Department of Education to improve quality in Unsatisfactory and Approaching Proficient programs in Orleans Parish. The grant will allow us to provide MMCI training over 180 staff in schools, Head Start programs and private Type III early learning centers that were rated as "Unsatisfactory" or "Approaching Proficient." We are launching our first cohort of MMCI participants in Spring 2019!

The MMCI Group Coaching program helps participants learn to use the CLASS® lens as a framework for understanding and improving the key teacher-child interactions that boost teacher professional development and children’s learning. During these group-coaching workshops, participants will:

  • Increase their ability to identify and provide interactions that promote learning;
  • Build their understanding of effective teaching from real classroom video observations; and
  • Grow professionally through interactive sessions with your fellow teachers and leaders.
Due to restrictions in funding, only staff who work at New Orleans programs rated as either Unsatisfactory or Approaching Proficient are eligible to participate.
