Children Pay Attention to What You Do

I am an educator because of a mentor who entered into my life when I was in Middle School.  Observing the way he interacted with others and me, the way he achieved, the way he dressed, and the respect he garnered from other professionals was amazing.  I decided long ago with the influence of a mentor that I would commit much time and efforts to becoming an educator and a mentor with hopes of having an equally positive impact on young minds.   

A very wise person once said to me, “Children may not always pay attention to what you say, but they will always pay attention to what you do.”  Believing that, shouldn’t we all pledge to provide our community’s youth with something positive to see?  Of course, providing them with positive feedback and conversations may go far as well.

I urge everyone to take that step and be a positive influence on a child’s life by becoming a mentor or tutor with one of the many programs in our community.
