About the eBook

"These mentoring tools allow me to have a reflective dialogue with teachers about their instruction that is unbiased, nonthreatening, and data driven. I use the tools daily. As my teachers evolve and advance in their practice, so do the tools."
—Amber Mieras, District Mentor, Union Elementary School District, Tolleson, AZ
