Our Mentor of the Month for July is Kate Corman. Kate is a mentor at Carver Community School.
Kate has been an EWI mentor for both the school year and summer programs for 5 years. She brings her love of reading and enthusiasm for books to the program. She consistently visits local libraries for books of interest for her mentees. This last school year her student enjoyed Super Hero books and she just may have checked out every Super Hero book in the city!
“Books take a person to a new place, another reality, where their imagination is the limit. A kid’s imagination is something to treasure so by reading they can use their minds in new ways they might not in the classroom, with friends, etc. I can think of no better way to share my love of reading than by reading with the Everyone Wins! Iowa Power Lunch program. It’s been a rewarding experience for me and I’ve gotten to reread and discuss some of my favorites again like “Charlotte’s Web” and “Fudge-a-mania”.”
Thanks for sharing Kate!
