Hello all. I am a second grade teacher and I am concerned about all students as they are going to the next grade levels. There are many children today who don't have roll models or if they do they are not very good ones for them. My school does peer mentoring for its students who are having problems dealing with other students. They are sort of like the go betweens for the students. I am looking at seeing things done alittle differently now. I feel as a teacher, a mother, and just a person that mentoring should start as early as possible. A first grader should be able to look at a second or third grader and see what they can be expected to do when they get there. Not that every person is the same, but the rules of the school game are pretty much the same. Students need to know when they get to the next level this is what I can look forward to. Students and teachers and even parents can make participate in these mentoring programs to make a difference in all of us.
