At the 2018 annual meeting of the American Education Research Association in New York, New York, Dr. Rubén Garza and Dr. Raymond Reynosa accepted the Distinguished Paper Award from the Mentoring and Mentoring Special Practices Interest Group for their paper, Characterizing Mentoring Capital in a Residency Program through Mentors’ Voices. The paper was co-authored by Dr. Patrice Werner, Dr. Ellen Duchaine and Dr. Rod Harter and illuminates the nuances of mentoring in a year-long placement in a mentor’s classroom. Their data revealed three main themes in this mentoring scenario: first, mentors’ professional altruism, or desire to help aspiring teachers; next, extant knowledge, the “experiences and cognitive understanding that inform a mentor’s practice;” and resident as stimulus, or “the influence of an additional collegial presence that influences the mentor’s professional growth.”
