K-8 mentors continue to mentor at Carmel schools


Breana Davis, K-8 mentor and senior, studies during SRT under the supervision of Robin Pletcher, AP Psychology and K-8 mentoring teacher. All mentors were assigned four students from Carmel elementary schools and are now driving out to their mentees during third block of Gold Days. Davis said, “We’ve been prepared and we know what generally is going to happen, but you don’t really know the kid until you meet the kid.”

The mentors have met their assigned mentees and will continue to mentor them every gold day for half an hour. Each mentor was assigned four students by Robin Pletcher, AP Psychology and K-8 Mentoring teacher, and since the two month training process has concluded, they will drive out to the Carmel elementary schools during class instead.

Pletcher said, “I think just the building of the relationships and the impact the strong helping relationship can have is most important.”

Mentor and senior Breana Davis said she joined because a friend in the class told her a lot about the program last year and Davis found it interesting.

“I eventually want to go into working in either pediatrics or some sort of psychiatry or something so I was really interested in it in general,” she said.
