Here's my response:
What can a teacher do to be a good mentor?
Don't bombard them with "stuff"! I know we all want to share, but the last thing a new teacher needs is piles of stuff to go through (no matter how wonderful it is) when they're already overloaded. Instead, ask them specific meaningful questions: "How are you planning on introducing this novel?" Or "Do you have a plan for comparing fossil fuels and alternative fuel sources?" Then you can share specific lessons, ideas, or activities that they can use right away.
