Leadership in Hard-to-Staff Schools: Novice Teachers as Mentors
Catapano, Susan; Huisman, Sarah
Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning, v21 n3 p258-271 2013
In our study, we chronicle the development of two novice urban teachers who developed in to mentors in the third year of their teaching. The two novice teachers were hired to serve as mentors to new teachers in or near their school. Interviews with the teachers about their experiences identified three areas of discussion as a result of their mentoring role that included reflection on the impact to their own practice, identification of the need for time management skills, and realization of the reasons for mentoring. The results of the novice teachers serving as mentors were positive for the mentors and helped to set the stage to sustain the mentoring program.
