Summary: A tool that worked to support teachers with the introduction to formal proof in geometry is discussed. The tool helped teachers navigate the ``shallow end" of proof. More specifically, the tool was shown to support teachers with introducing and scaffolding proof. Findings from this study suggest that the tool may be useful for supporting formal reasoning in geometry as well as other areas.
