Teaching Teachers Is Different from Teaching Kids: Strategies for Mentors

  • thumbnail for Colleen Conway
  • Experienced teachers who are working as mentors for new teachers in fieldwork, student teaching, and/or the first years of teaching will gain insight into the developmental needs of new teachers in these various stages. Based on extensive research of beginning music teachers, this session will include an overview of the typical experiences of new teachers in teacher education programs as well as suggested ways that mentor teachers can be most helpful.
