Overview

Whether in the context of a formal district-mandated program or in a grassroots effort, mentoring depends on the development of trust, respect and communication between mentor and prot�g�. To be a mentor means to have a vision and enable others to participate in the vision and to go on to be mentors themselves.

In this updated second edition, author Sullivan expands on contemporary mentoring--its roles as wise counselor, in teacher induction, for administrative advancement--and its new approaches evolving in the mastery of a field requiring hard work and talent.

Mentors and prot�g�s, wannabes and maybes--all can benefit from Sullivan's direct, on-the-mark delineation of the guidelines and ideas for adults in mentoring roles in this 21st century.

Cheryl Granade Sullivan has been a consultant specializing in custom educational and training services for more than 20 years. She also serves as a visiting faculty member at several universities, including the University of Texas at Austin and Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, Georgia.
