Mondays are now:My first Mentor Monday was a short one. I met A, my student and her mother. We went through the basic introductions and spoke about why were joined the program. Her mother is a hard working mom with 5 kids. She is the oldest and could use some individual attention, as she spends a lot of time taking care of the younger kids. She's smart, motivated, artistic, funny. We listened to Beyonce, she was surprised when I knew the words. Next week she wants to draw. I'm a little nervous about that since I saw her drawings and mine stack up. But I didn't join this program to teach her things, I joined to learn.
To spend time in a valuable way. To be energized.
I can't wait til next Monday.
