This week's spotlight mentor is Kristina Udd, an independent mentor of three students at Victoria West High School.
How long have you been a mentor for the district?
What made you decide to be a mentor?
I like kids, and thought I could be helpful, and I know I had 30 minutes a week to give.
What do you feel you bring to the student?
I feel I bring an open mind and a listening ear. I try to challenge them and support them at the same time.
What do you enjoy most about mentoring?
Relationships with the students and helping them see that they can do it.
What have you learned from the student, educational system, etc. that has enlightened you?
A little help and support can go a long way.
