Maximizing Mentoring Relationships
The purpose of this article is to provide strategies for music teacher mentors and mentees to use to proactively develop and strengthen their relationships—whether they are assigned by an administrator or begin organically—to enhance the overall mentoring experience, making it mutually beneficial for mentor and mentee. Strategies include using communication and collaboration, building reciprocity between parties, expanding professional networks, and developing personal relationships. Intentional efforts to communicate, reflect, share, overcome challenges, and spur professional development enrich the mentoring experience for both parties.
