My experience with Generation Text has given me a framework for living

Being a part of the Generation Text Online mentor program has taught me the importance of being mentally and physically happy. Through our weekly meetings, I have learned useful techniques to maintain my physical well-being and to help others achieve the same. These meetings with my peers and mentor have encouraged me to become more comfortable understanding my emotions and to be aware and respectful of the thoughts, opinions, and beliefs of those around me. My experience with Generation Text has given me the framework for learning how to deal with and resolve conflicts with others. Lastly, the platform has given me insight into the importance of the inclusion of others, which has ultimately taught me what it means to be accepting and tolerant of individuals whose opinions and attitudes differ from my own.

Generation Text has provided a safe space where I feel comfortable and free to share and discuss my own mental and physical health with others. The continuous support and acceptance given by my peers and my mentor throughout my training are the kinds of positive feelings I hope to give to my own mentees in the future.

I appreciate Sam's perspective and positive feedback that he shares with our group.

Small Groups are so beneficial

Attending small groups every week has been such a benefit to my life. In our small group we have an opportunity to release stress and anything we are overwhelmed with by sharing it with everyone.

A First-Year Teacher’s Obstacles

As a first year teacher there are many obstacles that you do not realize you will face when it comes time to leading your own classroom.

I look forward to my mentoring sessions!

During the time that I have been working with Generation Text Online Mentor Program I have made wonderful friends, learned a lot about myself, and gained a sense of pride and responsibility in my dealings with my peers.

Valuable insight and understanding

Ultimately, the skills have a direct impact on decision making, self-advocating, communication efforts, and positively effecting relationships.

There is a huge discrepancy between what students thing and what teachers think

While adults may believe they are doing enough, students do not think we are.
