Mentor Interview Summary Merylin Orris, RDH, BSDH is a former dental hygiene instructor of mine fom the Dental Hygiene program at SPC. She is a part-time dental hygiene clinical instructor at St Petersburg College Dental Hygiene Program. As a dental hygiene instructor, she followed my advancement through the two-year Associate in Dental Hygiene program and provided me with much valuable information and also with technical skills. As a mentor, she introduced me to the responsibilities and the joy of being a clinical instructor. Her passion for teaching and patience toward the students and colleagues captured my attention even before I applied for the bachelor's program. She guided me through the Capstone Practicum experience and was available
Throughout my high school years, and the past year especially, I feel that I’ve grown and matured while developing my skills in multiple areas. Through participation in community service events and employment, the experiences I’ve gained have caused me to want to continue expanding my knowledge in a university setting.
During these short winter days with their few precious hours of daylight, I’m reminded of our PALS Mentors, and the bright lights they have been to those newly diagnosed with breast cancer. After the initial shock of receiving this diagnosis, taking those first tentative steps into this unknown territory requires a sense of trust that the treatment process will lead to better things. Those who have already walked a similar path are in a perfect position to nurture that confidence. Some who are newly diagnosed with this disease will have strong support systems among their families and friends; others go it alone or with minimal support. Wherever a person may lie on the spectrum of support, most derive great benefit and reassurance from conversations with others who have “been there”.
Section C My mentor I interviewed was my mother, Christina Kidd a self-employed Esthetician who takes pride in her profession and loves what she does. She started her early adulthood as a waitress at several different restaurants, as a mother of three she attended a beauty college in Long Beach and achieved her associate’s degree in applied science. She then got training in esthetician at Career Academy to have a license to work in esthetics. She has been self-employed for majority of her adulthood, seventeen years. My mentor manages her own esthetician business called “Skin care by Christy”. She began her business in her home town Orange County by simply caring for other people’s skin till one day people insisted on paying her. Then she expanded

As a result of the mentor experience, my initial understanding of aging prior to the mentor experience changed. Initially, my understanding of aging what that it was an ongoing process of growth that can be denoted through the physical deterioration of the body. The body grows old, skin wrinkles, muscles shrink, and the bones weaken. However, this is not the only consequence of aging. Aging provides a new outlook on life and builds the spirit when reflecting on a life well-lived. Often times, aging is given a negative connotation when in reality it is a beneficial and positive process that leads to emotional, mental, and social growth. Consequently, one’s perspective of aging ultimately depends on their environments as well as their mediators.
One thing I believe is a necessity in growing up is having a mentor. Having a mentor is, not only, beneficial for the mentee but also the mentor. Being a mentor is a learning experience for everyone participating, it helps people grow as a person and friendships are created when a bond if formed. Some people might think it's a waste of time for a child or that it'll never work out for a troubled delinquent but based on the research I've done, I have proven them wrong. Through-out this paper I will provide the pros and cons of mentoring and how they affect both mentor and mentee. To back up my proposal that mentoring is supporting, I will supply examples to answer the question: Is mentoring really important?
The biggest challenge for my mentor has been getting her students to engage in the activities and to reciprocate what they’ve learned so far. Her sped student is not getting the help he needs at home to further his education, which pushes him behind in class. He doesn’t do anything that she sends him home with because he has no one there to sit him down and do it. It is still a challenge because his mom refuses to get him help, so he’s not getting the attention he

The aim of this essay is to discuss on how the reflection on mentorship will be undertaken, how and why the model of reflection will be used and the importance of confidentiality. I will reflect the mentorship by ensuring that the mentee during clinical practice is put at ease throughout the learning experience of four weeks (Quinn, and Hughes 2007, p. 29). Also, I will use the principle of Kolb’s learning cycle as my model of reflection because reflecting is an essential element of learning. As I am the mentor, I will follow this cycle in a clockwise direction with Jude, so she would have to reflect on the skills learnt by reviewing the whole situation (Kolb’s learning cycle 1984 in Rose and Best 2005, p.129). This would enable Jude to
I enjoyed reading your post as I can sense a genuine happiness about your position and employer you work for. The way you expressed your relationship with your boss reminds me of a mentor to their protégé. Even though it seems like you’ve moved to another position form where you started, she is still in tuned with you. Looking for opinions and input on situations does provide value to the individual. The best mentors are credible, challenge you to improve, stimulate you to take risks, build your confidence, support your efforts to set “stretch” goals, and identify challenges and opportunities. (Newstrom, 2015). I think your boss has these skills checked off with no effort and a clear example of participative leader.
Age does not matter Older adults don't care about age when looking for a companion even though, it seems counter-intuitive to say that since they are characterized by their age. On the other hand age discrimination is common among younger adults to such an extent that it is one of the most common filters used in online dating sites to find a match.
