We are seeking individuals in all areas of string education to serve as mentors for those who are relatively new to the field of teaching. There is a need for mentors in all areas of string education (all levels of classroom teaching, as well as private studio). Mentoring would entail being available to answer questions, allowing opportunities for observation, and just checking in now and then...
If you have been teaching for 10 years or more, and are willing to share the practical knowledge and the wisdom that comes with time and experience, please consider volunteering as a mentor.
A list of volunteer mentors, along with their bios, will be posted on the MA-ASTA Website. Mentor contact information will be kept confidential. Those seeking a mentor will apply through the suggestions box, and their request will be forwarded to the mentor by the program coordinator.
I will get the ball rolling by volunteering to take on to 2 individuals who are starting out as studio teachers, especially those working with more advanced students.
We look forward to hearing from you,
