"Barry, I really value your mentor training materials. They have been used by most of the mentoring programs across our state" - Dr. Wm. Barkley, Delaware State Dept. of Public Instruction

"Barry, thanks for what you have done for our district and our mentor program. We've had the program for 10 years and felt proud of what we have accomplished. However, your Best Practices and mentoring materials gave us the jump start we needed to revitalize us. Our strongest mentors have once again become "mentor magnets" attracting other veteran teachers into the ranks of new teacher advocates. (PS. I love that term "mentor magnets"! It says just what we want it to be.) - Sandy Nobles, Director of Instructional Initiatives, Richardson ISD, Texas.

"I am the Program Director for the New Mexico Transition to Teaching Program, a division of the Professional Education Department for the State of New Mexico in Santa Fe. I knew Barry and used his materials when I was on staff in the Transition to Teaching Program in Farmington NM. He was a wonderful coach for me, and I thank him.

We have a real passion for the support of new teachers through quality mentoring and induction programs. That is why we selected 10 documents from Barry’s work that we are now using as resources for New Mexico school district induction and mentoring programs. These materials are being used on our program web site and as hard copy handouts for district meetings and trainings across the state.

Now, I thank him for working with us in this state-wide implementation and support process, and for the very fair fee he charged us for licensing his materials for our districts to use."
- Carol Carpenter, Transition to Teaching Program Director
Public Education Department, Santa Fe, NM

Your patience and positive spirit was most inspirational and I am personally grateful for your charts, other materials, and suggestions for our work, they certainly made my task much easier." -Carole Pyle, Curric. & Instruction Coordinator, Cass Sch. District, Cass, IL

"We found Barry Sweeny right at the point when we were trying to figure out how to improve our mentoring program to make it a full induction program. Barry's wonderful advice and outstanding materials were invaluable to us in this challenging transformation. We especially love his mentoring styles inventory and mentor training ideas!" - Sharon Mullen, Staff Development Department, Fairfax County Public Schools, Virginia.
