Mentoring As A Career Path?

Some might suggest that teaching and mentoring are one and the same. To refute that fact, it might be put forth that the teacher guides and interprets the awareness and acceptance of certain bodies of knowledge; and in some instances, goes beyond imparting established utilization in pointing out accepted or  expected uses of that knowledge.

The mentor (who might be a teacher) goes well beyond the expected imparting  of knowledge. The mentor generally has aquired additional knowledge of the student who wants/needs expertise and advice in managing of his/her life decisions, which  is generally beyond the purview of the teacher.

The graduate school environment is the perfect incubator for the concept of Educational Mentors.
