Last year’s mentee Tasha Beaudoin (right) and the Thousand Oaks High School Lancer staff members celebrate their Gold Crown at the Columbia Scholastic Press Association 2016 awards ceremony on March 18 in New York City. This is a great article about California mentors and mentees by Konnie Krislock on the California Newspaper Publishers Association website: http://www.cnpa.com/california_publisher/features/high-school-mentors-help-to-create-winners/article_5674147c-f83d-11e5-9eef-87a7bdbd3c1c.html...
All the mentors are discussing professional development for mentees and documenting our work with new teachers. Linda Barrington is discussing the completion certificate she developed to give mentees who complete their two years in the JEA Mentoring Program.
Mentors broke into small groups and then shared strategies. Carol Smith reported for her group, including Marilyn Chapman and Babs Erickson (holding poster).
Peggy Gregory and Katy Gray staff the Meet the Mentors table in the JEA Bookstore. They answer questions about the mentoring program and offer advice to new journalism teachers.
