It is important for novice teachers to have mentors they can rely on, asserts David Cutler, a high-school history teacher in Florida. Cutler, who credits his mentorship for sustaining his career, writes in this blog post that mentors act as confidants, observers and confidence builders in teachers' first years on the job. "Without it, I would have become another statistic, quitting after my first few years on the job," Cutler writes of the mentorship he received from an experienced teacher.
