I am also a first year teaching and wanted to touch on your points about finding a “like-minded” colleague to assist you in your beginning years of teaching. It made me think of the mentoring program I am a part of and wanted to know your thoughts about what a good teaching mentoring program entails and what qualities a good mentor should have? What components are necessary in order for a successful partnership to be set up in terms of schedules, meeting times, discussion topics, etc.?
