Another 4th grade teacher asked me to mentor one of her students. Apparently the boy has a good family going through some hard times, and he’s acting out because of it. Maybe I can help. Say hi to him when I see him, call him out by name. Hang with him from time to time. We’ll see.

There’s a special breakfast this morning for teachers who are mentoring students, and their mentees (sp?). I feel like I’m about the only one who isn’t mentoring a student, and I feel GUILTY. That and selfish.
I try to remind myself that I”m already working with 5th graders at church. That’s mentoring, right? But those guys have so many more advantages than these kids. At least I think they do. That might be making assumptions that I shouldn’t.
So I feel guilty and selfish.
