The Power of a Mentor
Mentors can make a positive impact in the life of a child. An example of this is “Jane”. Last year, Jane was in second grade and in need of a positive person in her life. She was paired with a mentor who came to see her every week during lunch. By having this caring lady in her life, Jane’s behavior in school began to improve.
Jane is now in third grade. This week, Jane began to meet with her mentor again. Wednesday was the first time Jane had seen her mentor since the end of the last school year. The way Jane’s face lit up when she saw her mentor was priceless. I look forward to watching Jane’s progress this year and seeing the impact the mentor will have in her life.
