Hi Jim! Absolutely. Click on the Google doc and scan through the names. See if any come up that can support your interest. Then just email them...letting them know that you found them through our Mentoring Program. Let me know when you connect with someone...Cheers!

Hi Lisa,

 

Right now I'm working as a kindergarten Para.  Can I participate in the Mentor program?  I am certified in MA as a Visual Art Teacher (5-12) and I'll be taking the MTEL for General Curriculum in two weeks.  I would love to have a mentor to get me through these early stages.

Just so you know, friends...I consistently share the mentoring services that this group is willing to provide in as many SM venues, as I can. We may see a larger opportunity to support educators, world-wide after the Reform Symposium in late July. http://reformsymposium.com/ Cheers to you all!

Just joined this network. I'm eager to share resources and make connections with other educators around collaboration, mentoring, and best practices. Check out our blog/website at www.peersforum.org. We're hosting a fabulous summer institute at the end of June--we'd love to welcome new members.

Mike! Our peeps here would be so thrilled to connect with you. Let me know when you connect :)
Comment by Mike Vigilant on April 13, 2011 at 10:47pm
This is a great idea.  It's my first year and a mentor from here would have absolutely helped with my insane first semester.  I will look through the list of mentors and might just e-mail one.  Thanks for setting this up.  --Mike

Getting the same technology for students in specialized classrooms as the gen. ed. classrooms

Hello everyone! I have been in Special Education for more than 34 years.I am currently a retiree who has returned to the classroom and am teaching a high school Autism class. In all my time I have seen many things change, both as a teacher and as an administrator. But the one thing that hasn't changed is equal access to technology and other materials that are given to the general education classrooms. When it comes to deciding what to spend the budget on, we may start out with a "wishlist" but…See More

Equity between schools in the same district

An interesting theme came up while I was interviewing a principal friend of mine. She was discussing how she has begun to feel defeated because  of the new requirement our state has that all students will take the state assessments on line. She was saying that this will simply murder their school performance. Her student population is close to being 100% poverty, there is no parental support at all at home, and they only get computer time in school  a couple times a week due to too few…See More
