Paula and Julie are representing Just ASK at the California Induction Conference December 2-4 in Palm Springs, California. Just ASK is a Platinum Sponsor; we are also providing our collection of Teacher Leader Essentials (six books) and a copy of our Collegial Conversations DVD as raffle prizes. Julie is collaborating with Ronda Muñoz, Induction Program Specialist CERES USD, in a session in which they explain the work they are doing together in Ceres. The title of their session is “Far from the Shallows: Diving Deep into Induction and Mentoring Training.” A copy of their handouts is provided for you below. Paula and Julie are leading a session titled “Tools and Tidbits for Addressing the Challenges and Concerns of New Teachers;” a copy of their handouts is also available below. Additionally, participants in Paula and Julie’s session received a complimentary copy of Why Didn’t I Learn This in College? accompanied by a handout cross-referencing  that book with the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP). A copy of that document is also included here.

          The Just ASK December Mentoring Checklist

Each issue of The Mentoring Memo features a mentoring calendar for the current time of the year. The December calendar is now available. These calendars, excerpted and updated from The 21st Century Mentor’s Handbook, offer suggestions for mentoring actions to support novice teachers and teachers new to the district. When you take a look at them, you will quickly see how useful they are. Be sure to forward them to your mentoring colleagues. Post them or a link to them on your district/school website.

Download the December Calendar


Have a joyous (if crazed) month of December.

Rejuvenate, rejoice, and return after the winter break ready to continue the great work you do.
