Perceptions of Experienced Music Teachers regarding Their Work as Music Mentors
Journal of Research in Music Education Volume 56, Number 1, ISSN 0022-4294
The purpose of this study was to examine the perceptions of experienced music teachers regarding their preparation for and experience of mentoring in a 2-year mentor project focusing on the support of teachers in Title I schools in Orlando, Florida. Data included the following: initial expectations of mentoring from Year 1 (note cards), biggest challenges from Year 2 (note cards), mentor development session interactions from Years 1 and 2, interviews with mentors at the end of the study period, and research logs from the two researchers. Findings suggest that mentors need mentors; time management is a challenge for mentors; communication with the mentee is a challenge; observations of the mentees are necessary but difficult; technology can be a positive resource for mentor and mentee interaction; and mentors struggle to keep mentee interactions in the realm of support and not evaluation.
