ASTA Mentor Program History
ASTA's national mentoring program is based on the expressed need of ASTA members, many of whom are the only string/orchestra teacher in their building. The program launched in Spring 2016 with the pre-conference session, “Preparing To Be An ASTA Mentor.” During this session, experienced string teachers from across the country learned about the teacher development continuum, mentoring styles, communication strategies, and string/orchestra specific teaching challenges through discussion, video observation, and hands-on activities. Pre-conference facilitators were
Dr. Margaret Berg, Dr. Colleen Conway, and Mr. Bob Phillips.
