When done right, mentoring can uplift new teachers, invigorate aspiring leaders, enhance the skills of sitting leaders, and ultimately impact students now and for years to come.

The authors answer questions such as: How can I connect with my mentor or my mentee in a way that benefits us both? How can a mentoring program convey an inspiring purpose, so teacher leaders want to join? How can I encourage peer-to-peer mentoring at my school?-How can I grow as a leader through mentoring? It’s time to be a Modern Mentor
