We had one matched pair decide not to continue this year. The mentee said that they were, “doing just fine” and decided a mentor was not necessary. Throughout the year, this student has had some difficulties. Recently, I gave an update to the former mentor about the student and this mentor decided it was time to act. They took the time to write a letter to the student just as a form of encouragement. People can mentor, even when mentoring is not officially taking place.

Nancy provides the critical backbone of labor, coordination and communication for Partners for Schools. 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”
