"Mentorship of Special Educators allows the mentor another lens for helping the novice develop the critical skills for cultural responsiveness that all teachers must address within their classrooms." --Victoria Duff, Teacher Quality Coordinator (07/08/2011)
"As mentors, we are called to build accomplished teachers, not just keep the teachers we have. Mentorship of Special Educators provides mentors the the tools and strategies needed to be more than a "buddy" to beginning teachers and to help build accomplished special educators along the way." --Ann Marie Taylor, Special Education Mentoring Coordinator (07/08/2011)
"Mentoring and supporting beginning educators is crucial to accelerate the professional development of those newest to our profession. Teaching is hard work and we must rely on the expertise and wisdom of those who do it well! This book will jump start those conversations necessary to link improved professional practice with positive student outcomes."-- (07/08/2011)
"Most of the low performing schools and districts I work with serve large percentages of English language learners and special needs students. It is imperative that highly qualified special education and mainstream teachers work collaboratively to build success for their students. Mentorship of Special Educators is a wonderful tool. In particular, the chapters on Collaboration With Paraprofessionals and Collaboration with Professionals are very important. The activities and case studies throughout all chapters are excellent."-- (04/13/2012)
