Mississippi Department of Education “Creating Strong Readers Through Mentorship”


A mentor is a special kind of helper who works with others in a constructive and positive way so that both mentor and mentee can grow through the relationship.

Nowhere is that more evident than in the role of reading mentors who help younger students learn to read.
