The Principal's Principles

A Middle School Principal, striving to make the world a better place, one day at a time.

Action Item of the Day, Reach Out to Your Mentor

Chances are, if you have found success in the world of education, you have a mentor. Someone along the way has pulled you aside, given advice, helped you grow, and provided encouragement. I am fortunate, because I won the “mentor lottery,” and am surrounded by some of the brightest minds in education.

I’d imagine that, like me, you can say “I am the educator that I am because of my mentor(s).”

Now that your process for starting the school year has gotten under way, reach out to your mentors. Tell them your goals and action plan for the school year, and listen to their feedback. In our profession, our motivation comes from words of kindness, it’s also a great time to be intentional and tell your mentor(s) that you appreciate them and all they have done to help you along.

Take action today, reach out to your mentor. Set up an appointment. Be ready to be inspired.
