"Bravo for basing this on the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards! Standards for mentoring are long overdue. This book will become a primary resource for our annual mentoring staff development, to be used with both mentors and mentees." -- Mark Bower, Director of Elementary Education and Staff Development
"A much-needed resource for teacher mentors. The new and updated strategies and practical approach will give mentors crucial support as they provide assistance and encouragement to new teachers. Portner has clearly demonstrated the importance of both theory and practice in this practical guide." -- Priscilla Miller, Director
"With the guidance of Hal Portner, our new teacher induction/mentoring program made a turnaround from a bare minimum, "letter of the law" program into a dynamic, teacher-affirming program! Our mentoring team now has a shared vision of the components of effective mentoring and, more importantly, our mentees are reaping the benefits. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone interested in improving their school's mentoring program to read this book." -- William E. Collins, Principal
