Debbie Campbell has learned that listening is at the core of mentoring.
Although I taught forty years with the L.I.S.D. school district I made a decision after I retired to give a little of my time back to the children of this district who I felt were in need of some special time.

Barbara Willcox shares the simple moments that make mentoring at Hedrick Elementary the highlight of her week.
I just returned from my time with my 2 nd Grader at Hedrick. She is bright and full of vigor! Today I met her outside her classroom as the class was going outside for recess.

Rev. Clay Horton has learned a lot from the elementary kids he mentors each week. Read his story.
1.5 Miles = 10 Light Years
For the past three school years, I've volunteered on nearly a weekly basis at Hedrick Elementary. To be honest with you, if I were a teacher, I would not teach elementary school. It would be my last choice of all the schools. God bless elementary school teachers, but I just know that job would not be for me. Despite my feelings about not...
