Overview

Learn how to set up a mentoring program for your district or school that can help administrators be more effective at each stage of their careers. This book covers the major issues of planning, mentor selection, training, evaluation - all those "unique ingredients" necessary at all stages of the administrative journey. Crow and Matthews identify the functions, content, and meaning of mentoring in education and introduce the concept of mentoring as a careerlong learning tool for educational administrators. They describe the different participants as proteges, who want or need assistance, and mentors, who lead and teach. Finding One's Way is for anyone who is involved in developing a mentoring program, who already is a mentor, or who wants to be or have a mentor.
