What our current peer mentors have to say


Courtney Christensen

Being a peer mentor has allowed me to apply what I have learned in my education classes to real life teaching. This helped me to work on skills such as public speaking before going into my 321 and 322 field experiences, which allowed me to feel more confident and comfortable in my 321 field experience.  I have also enjoyed the social opportunities to build relationships and network through training opportunities and the people within my learning communities.  Being a peer mentor opened more doors academically and socially and reaffirmed my desire to be a teacher.

Nicole Loewen

This is my third term being a peer mentor and I have had an amazing experience throughout each term.  I became a peer mentor to overcome anxiety with public speaking and get more experience making lesson plans.  I have also built relationships with other peer mentors and people in the learning communities that has made my time at the College a fun time.  I encourage you to become a peer mentor if you are possibly thinking about it.

Peer mentoring has given me an opportunity to facilitate activities and discussions before entering a classroom.  It has been great to connect with other peers in the college that I would normally not have the chance to.

Peer mentoring has really helped me to get out of my shell.  It has also brought me a lot of joy and has helped me to feel like I am part of a community.

Over the past 2 years, being a peer mentor has given me so much.  It has given me the confidence to present and teach in front of my peers.  It has allowed me to grow my professional identity within the College and in my career. Finally, it has allowed me to create lasting friendships with other teacher candidates. It has beena blas to be a part of this community of peer mentors. I cannot recommend it enough!
