Living in Two Worlds: My Voice as a Foreign-Born African American Teacher Educator
McCollin, Michelle J.
Multicultural Learning and Teaching, v5 n1 p34-41 Apr 2010
The mentor-mentee relationship is a critical aspect of the success trajectories of many foreign-born African American scholars. Within the context of this relationship, both the mentor and mentee have an opportunity to not only exchange ideas and experiences that contribute to success, but more importantly, the sometimes isolated scholar has an opportunity to connect with others who have had similar experiences within the academy. In this article I discuss how good mentoring can help "?new"? foreign-born faculty to gain insights into the nuances of successfully navigating higher education.
