See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I am a preschool teacher, and have never been a mentor teacher before. There is a language barrier also, but something else also. Feel like my attempts to train are taken the wrong way, or I'm told yes I understand but will do what I want. I believe this is her 5th week now. I know she is very entry level, starting last week I started to kinda step back and let her stand on her own. It is a very busy afternoon class and we are busy getting children down for naps (some who do not nap) and cleaning or doing prep. I feel like I'm loosing my patients and feel she may not be cut out for this line of work. Please give me ideas on how to build a mentor relationship, because I feel like I'm running around covering a lot when it is supposed to be a team environment.
