In a previous post just below, I mentioned how I thought it might be interesting if I mentored nerds in high school about what’s in store for them in the near future.
Over the weekend, I was able to discuss the matter with my lovely sister, while we dined at a Mother’s Day dinner. She was kinda skeptical as to how I might officially describe this “mentoring program” to school officials. She’s right I suppose, as I can’t imagine how it might go over if I march into a high school office and say, “Give me your three biggest nerds. It’s mentoring time.”
I think I need to start off by naming it something more legit, like perhaps, “life coaching for exceptionally academically gifted students”. In any case, my sister said she’d run the idea by some of her friends who are high school teachers. No one can accuse me of not trying to give back to the community!
Last but not related, the archives have been updated to the right.
One thought on “UPDATE ON NERD MENTORING”
I wish someone had come to my high school and given me that talk. Maybe I would have learned to play guitar or race cars instead of going to university for half my life.
