Secret Pal Mentoring?
One of the buzz words of the day now is "mentors" and "mentoring". Well, at least in my life it is a buzz word. The master's program I'm in is into mentoring. It's a way to pass on knowledge and help newbies to the program/organization/system, etc. A thought occurred to me over my mornnig cream Earl Grey. How could we as experienced Secret Pals help out the newbies learn the ropes, become awesome secret pals, and reduce flaking out? My answer is (in case you haven't guessed it): mentoring! I'm not sure how to arrange it just yet, but those who would like to be a SP Mentor could be matched with a Newbie SP and the Mentor would act as a resource for the Newbie. A mentoring partnership is what both of you make it, so it can be minimal or involved, it just all depends on what the needs are. Perhaps how it could be arranged is that a list of those who would like to be available for mentoring could be established and posted either on C'Ville or on the SP Single Crochet blog, along with e-mail info, and availability status given, such as taken or available, could be added to the person's name. Feedback, thoughts, ideas, comments, criticisms? My morning cup of tea is empty, so I will end here as I'll need to recharge. I sometimes wonder why I even brew the tea leaves anymore. I should just start sucking the leaves directly. Hmmmm...caffeine!
