    Does anyone know anything about elementary-school peer facilitators -- the role they play, a general job description, etc.? Is anyone here a peer facilitator?

    I have Googled using all sorts of phrases and found mostly peer-to-peer facilitator info, which isn't what I am looking for.

    Thanks in advance!

    Where did you come up with the phrase? did you read it in a book? did your principal tell you? I need some clues!

    It was mentioned to me by someone who says I am being considered for such a position in a new district.

    The P and the person who told me about it are not available right now to give me more info, and I thought maybe someone here could. I wanted to learn more before speaking to the P. I am one of those people who prefer to know at least a little something about things beforehand :)

    If I had clues I could figure it out -- but I don't :(

    We have peer facilitator. I haven't been one but basically it is a person that leads all of our meetings and make sure we stay on topic. She also, goes to meetings with the principal and brings back info. to us and give info to the higher ups from us.

    I assumed from the term that it would have something to do with my peers, but my friend said it was working with students. This is so confusing -- sorry to have drawn you all into it :haha:

    I guess it depends on the school system.
