    unlike any other an educator has experienced.
  • The MEL is VOLUNTARY.

    educators are master educators.
  • Many candidates will not attain mastery.

Dramatic Culture Change

    practice.

    and portfolio assessment.

    samples, videotapes, and analyses and reflections

    personal involvement in the critical roles of the

    experience the educator will have had in
    education.

    commitment and rigor.
