Do you wish you had more support and encouragement from other teachers in your school? Consider virtual mentorship!
My good friend Lisa Dabbs is on the Truth for Teachers podcast today sharing why she’s so passionate about new teacher mentoring, and how you can get involved (as a mentor or mentee) in her free New Teacher Mentoring Project.
Lisa is a wife and mom who started her career as an elementary school teacher in Southern California. She then spent 14 years as an elementary school principal. Since 2009, Lisa has supported teachers in her role as an Educational Consultant, writing books for teachers, conducting instructional coaching, presenting at conferences and online webinars, founding the #ntchat (New Teacher Chat) on Twitter, and much more.

Lisa founded the New Teacher Chat on Twitter 5 years ago and continues to offer mentorship there every other Wednesday. If you’re a new or pre-service teacher who needs advice (or you’re an experienced teacher who wants to help), use the hashtag #ntchat on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month at 8PM EST.
