Anecdotal Responses Collected through Interviews with Selected Mentees in the Educational Administration Program.
Rippe, Kenneth
This paper reports the results of interviews with selected candidates in the educational administration program at the University of Nebraska, Omaha. The interviews, which were designed to investigate the benefits of a resource mentoring program, examined how respondents' relationships with their administrators had changed as a result of participating in the resource mentoring program; how often they met with their mentors; projects they worked on with their mentors; and how working with a resource mentor enhanced their educational administration program. Overall, respondents considered the program highly valuable, providing them with real-life experience in their chosen field, and they hoped it would continue. They supported the expansion of mentoring activities. Four out of six mentees mentioned a closer working relationship with their mentors as a result of the program. The frequency of mentoring meetings ranged from daily to bi-weekly. Mentor projects varied greatly and included a formal shadowing project, development of a web site, and coordinating a gifted and talented program. (SM)
