One person in my school who I think is a great mentor is Mrs. M. Most people in our school don’t realize that she is there to help people with all sorts of problems, not just those that have to do with drugs and alcohol. A couple times in the past year, Mrs. M has taken some students to conferences on how to prevent drug and alcohol abuse, and from these conferences I have gained a lot. When we go to these conferences, we learn so much and become closer with our peers. By taking us to all of these workshops or conferences, she is helping us become better people and showing us how to help people within our community. This might not seem like she’s a mentor, but to all these people, she is.
