Celebrating YOU

According to South Dakota Secretary of Education Dr. Melody Schopp (personal communication, 2010), “We have seen that having mentors who can come to the principals to provide support where they are and work has been a unique method. While we have always struggled to provide ongoing support and funds for mentoring, it is something we need to consider continuing to find ways to help keep this work going.” (p. 15)
