RPS Mentor Program

faculty members adjust to their new environment. The program’s
success will depend on the new faculty members, their mentors and
administrators all taking an active role in this process.

new faculty member. The mentor might keep in contact by
dropping by, calling, sending e-mail, or extending a lunch
Networking – the mentor will help the new faculty member
establish a professional network.
Confidentiality-the mentor will respect the new teacher’s
confidentiality in a non-evaluative relationship.
