Michelle Seetner: Mentee Spotlight

Posted by Avanti Women Aug 27, 2015
The education industry is a difficult field to break into. As a young teacher, I felt overwhelmed by the lack of opportunities and the many levels of bureaucracy present in the public school boards. I wanted advice and insight from someone who had a clear understanding of what administrators look for when hiring educators.

I chose Avanti Women for the mentorship program because I was promised my very specific professional needs would be met. Unfortunately, few senior educators are members of mentor programs, but Dina assured me she could find someone. And boy, did she ever: a senior member of a public school board with experience hiring educators!

My mentor has helped me rework my resume and cover letter. She has also become my newest reference! I have started submitting my updated resume and cover letter to potential employers, and am looking forward to the results. I am so thankful for this new relationship that I would never have forged without the aid of Avanti Women.
