Mentoring Circles and LinkedIn Groups

Author : Diana Bharucha

About two years ago, in 2012, I was seeking a mentor. I have had several mentors in my past. I am still in touch with my 8th grade English teacher from Killough Middle School in Houston, Texas. I will never forget the extra credit assignment I was given on Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. My English teacher encouraged me to write and do research. She saw my potential and prompted me to excel in school. She continues to mentor me, and now we speak more about our family and less about academics.
