Author Bob Proctor once said, “a mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you than see in yourself, and helps bring it out of you.” Often, a good mentor has tread similar grounds as their mentee, thereby knowing the snags and snares they might encounter on their path to growth.

As a Provo Adult Education graduate and now district employee, Shaylee Peterson is a perfect mentor, model, and aid for the students she comes in contact with daily. 

Shayley’s positive attitude and can-do spirit have earned her the respect and admiration of her colleagues and the students she serves.
