"Two years ago, I didn't see myself as a "mentor" and certainly not as a "techie." I have to admit that I have seen myself grow personally and professionally from this TIMAC experience. I've never thought of myself as a leader or a "mentor," but in the last couple of years I've watched people follow my lead. I've had many teachers come to me with questions; some work-related, some not.
"I've accepted that I may not know all of the answers all of the time for all of the people, but sometimes I know just enough to help someone. I've become more confident in my use and knowledge of educational technology. I'm realistic about what I can do, and what my limitations are. I'm very happy with my growth and success and it encourages me to continue learning, teaching, and mentoring."
