Many successful people attribute their success to having had a great mentor! But, did you know that you can also experience high levels of growth by being a mentor, as well? Serving as a mentor could give you the opportunity to develop your communication skills, gain a new perspective, give back and expand your network. And, who knows----your mentee might even become your mentor someday…

Six representatives from the Walker Early Learning Center/Wayne County Middle School Mentee/Mentor program fill these roles in an exceptional way. They represent over fifty students involved in this program. Veteran Teacher Stacey Corder, who is a Go Cards Award winner, Read to Achieve Grant writer, and occasional clogging contributor serves as the Mentee/Mentor coordinator. Corder serves as the Read to Achieve Teacher at Walker Early Learning Center. She knows how to lay a strong foundation for children that fall into her intervention program, mixed with a strong dose of passion.

Walker Early Learning Center is experiencing impressive improvements in their kindergarten students’ reading skills, with programs like the Mentee/Mentor program. Corder has given 31 years of quality instruction to Wayne County children.
