Good Teacher Mentoring and Supervising

I currently supervise one teacher assistant. As I said in my last post, I want to move from merely supervising her, to mentoring her. I've also found that I will be taking on a student teacher soon and I want to be a good role model and mentor for this person as well.

I have found some helpful resources on-line and I'd like to share them with you.

TEACHER MENTORING SPECIFIC
On-Line Mentoring This is an article located at the Education World website. There are some links to listservs and teacher chats. I have not utilized these as of yet, but will be checking into them soon.

New Teacher Mentoring This is a resource indicating the "ins" and "outs" of mentoring.

Giving Feedback to Trainee Teachers Although this post was written with the novice ESL teacher in mind, I found it helpful and hope you will too!

TLN Resources There are many wonderful resources here, including a link to the movie, TEACH.

GENERAL STAFF MANAGEMENT/SUPERVISION
Management Help There are many good resources here, especially if you are working for a nonprofit, like I am.

7 Habits Well, I feel like a broken record here. I continually am talking up the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This is the philosophy that am working at living and managing others by.

More 7 Habits Info This site gives a nice overview of the 7 Habits.

7 Habits Notes This is a site that I visit pretty frequently. It has a great overview of each habit and a section where you can dialog with the person who put this site together.

Great Management This website has lots of tips and articles regarding management.

It sounds like you are doing all you can to do your job well! Too bad more people don't do that!
