My mentor was outstanding! As a teacher, I needed help but didn't want it done for me. Jess took me through step by step and made sure I understood what needed to be done. I know that teachers are the hardest students and I'm probably the worst of them. She was very understanding of my concerns and desire to learn. I know I had some silly questions and I could see the frustration my dumb questions on her face. But she remained professional and continued to assist me. After 23 years in the military, I've seen some great professionals and some slackers. She would definitely fall on the positive side and you should be proud to have her on your team. I would use her again any time and recommend her to anyone needing her kind of help. She also understood that funds were tight for me and she did so much, in so little time, but still gave me the time I needed to learn. I thank Jess Smith for her help, her smile, and her attitude. And no, I don't believe we're related.
