The teachers at our school are working hard at refining and defining our in-house mentoring program. because the mentoring I received when I was a new teacher helped me so much in having a successful experience in the classroom, it is quite important to me to see that strong mentoring and leadership carry on. It is a subject that is near and dear to my heart.
I’ve taken on the task of researching the best approach to mentoring and evaluation of teachers and I am fortunate that AWSNA, the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America, have put together a report of a survey that they did of successful Waldorf schools. The structure is all right there, now it is just up to us to put it in p,ace and carry it out. We are fortunate that we have a faculty full of talented and experienced teachers who are happy to share the wisdom of their ways.
I, myself, have given lots of thought to how I can best share my insights and experiences and this blog is a huge part of that process. I do think, though, that nothing can compare to the wisdom that can be imparted in a one-on-one, teacher-to-teacher relationship.
For this reason I am quite interested in exploring the possibility of offering mentoring and consultation through this site. My time is limited, but I so strongly believe that cultivating human relationships and helping others to become better teachers would be time well-spent.
So I’ve added another product to my list. I’m now offering consulting by the hour. This consultation will happen on the phone and will be preceded by email exchanges so I can prepare enough to make our time more valuable.
If you are interested in purchasing an hour of consulting time go ahead and add it to your cart and check out and I will contact you to make arrangements.
