Mentoring for School Quality: How Educators Can Be More Professional and Effective

Dr. Carlos McCray’s book, Mentoring for School Quality: How Educators Can Be More Professional and Effective, is now available via Rowman & Littlefield.

We all have had mentors, those key adults from family, work, or schools who have assisted us in learning and becoming good adults, skilled and able professionals, and contributing member of community and society. Although it’s not easy, it does occur, is doable, and this book seeks to help everyone – educators, in particular — both to be mentored and to be a mentor.

Mentoring for School Quality is the companion to Mentoring with Meaning: How educators can be more professional and effective, both edited by Dr. McCray.



3 Reasons to Sample a Class at Fordham GSE

If you are interested in sampling a class at Fordham GSE without applying to a degree program, we encourage you to apply as a non-matriculated student.

1. Immerse Yourself in the Fordham GSE Community Before Deciding Whether to Apply for a Degree Program

Whether you want to take for professional development or intellectual curiosity, or prior to applying for a degree program, non-matriculated status will allow you to experience academic life at GSE.

2. Build a Relationship with Our Faculty

Over the course of the semester, you will have the opportunity to learn from, talk to, and connect with whomever is teaching your class.

3. Network with Our Students

Our students come from a variety of backgrounds and have diverse professional experiences. Class sizes are small to encourage students to interact and learn from each other.

How to Register as a Non-Matriculated Student

Registration for Fall semester classes is on September 8th and 9th from 3-6pm.
