Join host, Allison Elkow Lazicky as she kicks off her "Kindness Leaders in the World of Education" series with Jane Mintz the Director, Educator Support and Effectiveness for Ventura County's Office of Education about her role setting up all new teachers in the county with a mentor and how she supports the teachers that serve as mentors. They discuss the attributes needed to be an effective teacher. She identifies the kindness leader who influenced her to be a teacher and the student that she herself influenced to be a teacher. Jane shares a few teaching stories that will surely make you smile and takes on the 10 Question Challenge at the end of the show. Oh, and did we happen to mention that Jane is Allison's sister?
