"The mentoring tools in this book allow me to have a reflective dialogue with teachers about their instruction that is unbiased, nonthreatening, and data driven. I use the various tools daily so that the needs of all my teachers are met. As my teachers evolve and advance in their practice, so do the tools I use with them."
