Do you have a mentor? Tell us about him or her? Are you mentor to someone else? Tell us what that relationship has added to your life.

I do not have a mentor, I really didn’t have one when I was in school. I always felt I was able to take care of everything¬†myself, it worked out all right for me.

I was a mentor to someone at one time, she and her husband had jobs for a while, then lost the jobs because job situation was getting worse at that time.

She asked me once what could she do to get a job, I knew she had a masters degree in Mathematics, I advised her to register for an education degree, she agreed and did as I told her. Her friends discouraged her, they informed her, they didn’t think she’d get a job in any school even if she had an education degree.

They were wrong she was hired in a private school when she completed her degree  and was happy, she used to tell me about her job. I encouraged her not to give up because the salary was low.

I have no contact with her now, I am glad she listened and was doing well. She always thanked me for encouraging her.
