Mentoring is very beneficial to students' education
Charleston, SC (PRWEB) January 20, 2015
On January 20, 2015, My Positive Perspective aired an episode to discuss the benefits mentoring has on students and society. My Positive Perspective host Jason Deierlein was joined by Pastor Gordon Cashwell for the informative episode. At the beginning of the episode Deierlein says, “I started my mentoring experiences with Communities in Schools and saw the knowledge of second and third graders expand greatly.” Deierlein continues, “From that point, I spoke to several classrooms of students and talked about the hard work I expired to recover from a car accident. I currently mentor a seventh grader and have been very pleased to see his confidence and knowledge grow.” Cashwell then says, “It’s great when people from the community come help those in need whether it be from the standpoint of education, or whatever their difficulties are.”
Cashwell then says, “Everybody has a story that is called life. We all have different characters that are noted. However, for those of us who are not fortunate enough to have a parent play a dominant part in our lives, one would think it would be someone who took time to speak to us and educate us. That would be a person we could write about in their book of life.” Deierlein then says, “That is what I attempt to do with students, make a difference in hopes that they will remember that somebody cared enough to take the time to make a difference.
“My Positive Perspective is a media outlet believing that improvement in our community will be best achieved by focusing on the good things happening in our world today. Having survived a near fatal car accident as a youth, a shift of perception forced one to have a mentality of always concentrating on the brighter sides of things. This was true, and in my book, Return From a Comatose Mind, this belief was put to the test. Appreciation for life was the biggest thing one took away from my brush with death, and it is because of that gives me such a huge desire to be helpful to many. My Positive Perspective is a way of overcoming challenges through positive thinking.”
