Perceptions of a Principal Mentoring Initiative
Gimbel, Phyllis; Kefor, Kristine
NASSP Bulletin, v102 n1 p22-37 Mar 2018
The daily demands on school principals require clear and consistent feedback, and without a mentor, a new principal may not have this type of assistance. This phenomenological study explores the perceptions of new principals and their assigned mentors in one legislated initiative, named by the researcher as the Vermont mentoring "program." Vermont requires new principals to be mentored for 2 years. Study participants discuss their mentor-mentee relationship and how that affects their leadership practices.
