Everybody Needs a Betsy
Hanuscin, Deborah L.
Science and Children, v47 n9 p41-43 Jul 2010
The author's most meaningful professional development (PD) experience was not a workshop or institute; nor did it result from a course or professional reading. Rather, it came in the form of Betsy--the second-grade teacher down the hall. This article describes the role of a mentor in professional development--and why everybody needs a Betsy!
