We had two matches that did not seem to be working out this month. Both students approached me with frustrations concerning their mentor. Instead of ending the relationships, I decided to speak with each of their mentors to see if we could find a solution. I encouraged both mentors to change their approach and be more consistent in their attendance. This made a world of difference. Both students are now very happy with their mentors and want to continue after only a few tweaks to their relationships.

She understands the heart beat and passion of our school leaders and teachers. “After raising our 4 kids, I know it just does not stop there. It really takes many individuals and a community to support kids, families and schools, and I love connecting the critical dots. Every child can benefit from a caring adult mentor”
