We knew her way back when!

May 12th, 2010

If the young, blond teacher on the cover of the first edition of Mentoring Beginning Teachers looks familiar, there is a good reason for it. That’s Sarah Brown Wessling, this year’s National Teacher of the Year. On this old cover she is pictured with one of the book’s authors, Donna Niday, who was also Sarah’s English Education professor and mentor. Sarah coauthored a chapter in one of Donna’s later books, Mentoring Across Boundaries.

The picture below was taken the evening before Sarah (center) received the honor from President Obama, as she celebrated at a gala with Donna (left), and colleague Rachel Mullen; Michelle Tremmel (featured on the cover of Mentoring Across Boundaries), and Bob Tremmel, who also teaches English Education at Iowa State University along with with Donna.

Watch this space for an upcoming podcast with Sarah and Donna as they discuss Sarah’s career and the role mentoring played in her success. Coming soon!
