How to show compassion to your student

This month, we’re sharing some ways that you can show compassion to your student. It starts with humility, and it requires you to choose to see the value in your student.

We want to wrap up this month’s focus on compassion by reminding us all that being a mentor takes time. Showing compassion may not be a natural response for you, and your student may not initially respond well to your attempts to show compassion.

As mentors, we need to be willing to invest relationally in our students.

We need to start with our own humility.
We need to choose to see the value of our students.
And, we need to remember that this all takes time.

Thank you all for what your doing to bring hope to students’ lives!
