Productive and Consistent In Professional Devolopment of Mentors
Mentor (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – December 22, 2017
As an AmeriCorps member and Mentor a typical day at work consisted of learning the material and lesson that was going to be given to students. Once lesson was given the assignment would be given. As a mentor I would prioritize students who were assigned to me or I was assigned to and then would search the room for other students who did not understand the material. I learned that students did not necessarily learn the material in the amount of time the lesson was given. Thus I would review the material with them and make sure they understood the material or one problem. I would then move on to the next student. The work place culture was great although the students in the school site I was assigned to were still developing as students I enjoyed the work culture where there was various people who reinforced the material and the need to have a mentor was great. This allowed me to give my whole effort and do my best without exhausting what needed to be done. The hardest part of the job was starting all over everyday in motivating youth to be involved and do assignment. Most enjoyable part was when they were motivated to do the assignment , understand , and complete the assignment with a thorough understanding and sense of accomplishment.
