Mentoring Principals
Frameworks, Agendas, Tips, and Case Stories for Mentors and Mentees



March 2005 | 168 pages | Corwin
This guide will be invaluable to mentors of new headteachers and designers of mentoring programs. For the mentee or new headteacher, it will jump start their process and shorten their learning curve. The authors recognize the primary role of the headteacher as instructional leader but also address the practical aspects of the headship. Their overview of mentoring includes a checklist of specific objectives linked to learning activities.

At the core of the book, a series of mentoring field stories, including comments from mentees, brings to life the issues and crises around which new headteachers are likely to speed dial their mentors, and also provides models for how the mentor can guide, support, encourage, but ultimately leave decision and responsibility with the new headteacher.

A recognized headship expert, the lead author has invited and shared here the collected wisdom and mentoring guidelines from leading mentoring colleagues from around the country to make this the truly indispensable handbook for mentoring reflective headteachers.

Paul G. Young has been a President of the National Association of Elementary School Principals and is now a Principal at West Elementary School, Lancaster, OH
