mentee (plural mentees)
Mentee is the term we use for someone who is being mentored or would like to be mentored. In this program, a mentee is a high school teacher who is new to teaching physics material.
You will be sent an email and an alert is posted on the website as soon as you've been selected as the mentor for a mentee.
Currently we cannot allocate funds to compensate or provide stipends to mentors. We hope everyone involved recognizes the intrinsic, professional, and educational (learning happens in both directions!) value of participating in the program.
Although the eMentoring program is new, there are plenty of mentors. New mentees are given a number of mentors from whom to choose.
