Mentoring at Hackley
No faculty handbook can possibly include all the information that may help a faculty member adjust professionally or personally to a new school. In recognition of this, each new faculty member is assigned a faculty mentor -- a colleague familiar with the culture, routines and expectations who can provide guidance and support.

Over seven years ago now, I taught a senior English class focusing on identity, and we had frequent discussions in class on the impact of a place on a person’s sense of who they are. When I think of Hackley, I think of it as a place that instills confidence, respect, and a true love of education in students and educators alike. With its stately buildings, thoughtful, curious student body, and inspirational mottos inscribed in stone around campus, it is a truly amazing place to teach. And it is a place that most certainly has a positive impact upon the identities of all who are a part of its community. I feel proud that I had the opportunity to work there, and I just hope that someday, when I return to teaching […] I will be able to find a school to call home that resembles Hackley.
