Great Mentors help you succeed!

Although I haven’t read Amanda’s blog about her experiences about her mentors, I do have to agree with the Ramblings of a Preservice teacher on how important it is to have a supportive mentor that is encouraging.

I have been fortunate to have shared my professional experiences with wonderful mentors that have not only been supportive and encouraging also welcoming, which can be so important when you are walking into the unkown and are already feeling a little anxious.

I found this article or should I say post, that speaks about toxic mentors and the post goes on to give some tips on how to survive when faced with just such a mentor.  Hopefully my future mentors will be more on the ‘good cop’ side than the ‘bad cop’ side.
