January Marks "National Mentoring Month"


Every educator should invest in the future by mentoring a child. How many children need someone who can help them explore ways to succeed?

One of TeachAde's newest resources shares strategies on how to help students tackle today's issues whether it be at school or at home.

To be a mentor, one doesn't need special skills, just an ability to listen and to offer friendship, guidance and encouragement to a young person. And the experience an educator receives by being a mentor is truly rewarding.
