So I've been a mentor before, but I'm having some difficulty with my mentee this year. I've been sensing more tension recently which I think stems from the fact that she's been hanging out with the one teacher on our campus who hates me (drama, drama ). I did try to talk to her about it, and she swears everything is fine but I think it may be part of the issue. The real problem is-- we are required to meet with our mentees and document the meeting at least 20 mins every week. She won't meet with me. She says she's doing great, doesn't need any help. When I told her it was required; she stated that she is busy every day before school (she gets there early, but has to prepare for the day) and has to leave right at dismissal every day. We have different planning times. So what do I do? Do I push or just let it go, wait until she initiates that she needs help and just not get my stipend this year? (it's really not very much but I feel like I should do the job I agreed to do). Personally, I don't understand it-if I was a 1st year teacher I would have loved for someone to help me with planning, assessments, daily issues, etc. Even with my experience I would love to be able to bounce ideas off someone once a week!
