With the impending teacher shortage, the current emphasis on alternative licensing for teachers, and the growth of online virtual schools, how can educators be sure that virtual teachers are prepared for this new environment? Mentoring is a current strategy utilized to aid the development of classroom teachers, and is being utilized to assist a virtual teacher to meet standards needed for certification. This paper describes how the mentoring process is being adapted to meet the needs of the virtual teacher while satisfying state teacher education standards.
