Education Consultant
Teacher Induction Mentoring & Coaching

"With the guidance of Hal Portner, our new teacher
induction/mentoring program moved from a bare
minimum, "letter of the law" program into a dynamic,
teacher-affirming program! Our mentoring team now
has a shared vision of the components of effective
mentoring and, more importantly, our mentees and
students are reaping the benefits."

-- William E. Collins, Principal
