A useful guide for teacher mentors as they face new and difficult challenges in their work

New teachers often struggle to apply their knowledge in real-world settings, and the idea of mentoring these teachers during their first years in the classroom has captured the imagination of schools all over the world. Drawn from the experiences over the last twenty years of the New Teacher Center, the book illuminates the subtleties and struggles of becoming an excellent, effective mentor. The book discusses the five big tensions of mentoring: developing a new identity, developing trusting relationships, accelerating teacher growth, mentoring in challenging contexts, and learning leadership skills.

  • A wonderful guide for both new and veteran mentors
  • Includes engaging firsthand narratives written by mentors working in a variety of settings
