Educational mentoring relationships range
… from the most functionally basic induction, to detailed, complex long term relationships designed to meet the specific needs of the individual(Odell, 1990; Cross, 1998; Dallat et al., 2000; Mathews, 2003).
Maidir le meantóireacht mhúinteoirí nua-cháilithe, (NQTs), chreid Stoll and Fink (1996, p.156)
….mentoring of newly qualified teachers offers experienced teachers the opportunity to take on leadership roles as they help induct an inexperienced colleague into the working and social life of the school.
Thagair Kelly et al.,(1992, p. 173) ar chumhacht Meantóireachta mar
… a powerful and cost-effective way of increasing personal and organizational focus and central to the institution’s staff development strategies and plans, rather than merely a way of smoothing new staff entry, or offering tips for getting around bureaucratic procedures.
Other authors refer to this process of self actualization as ‘being a teacher’(Calderhead and Shorrock, 1997, p. 194),
or developing as ‘a professional colleague’(Eisner 1978, p. 622).
Villani (2002) referred to the ‘existential aspects’ of being a teacher.
...becoming a teacher is not simply a matter of doingwhat teachers do, it is also a matter of being a teacher. The latter involves a personal investment, a feeling of being at ease in the role of a teacher, an acceptance of teaching being part of one’s identity…(Calderhead and Shorrock, 1997, p. 194)
