I was thinking of my mentors today. I just completed that annual event called the “rush-to-get-your-ASHA-convention-proposals-in” scramble. As part of this rush, I worked with one of my long-time mentors, Alan Kamhi, on submitting a proposal. It hit me today that, over the years, I have been blessed with a number of mentors. Some of these valued colleagues and friends are long-term mentors; others were short-term mentors. By definition, mentors help educate, counsel, and direct their mentee, or protégé. That’s exactly what my mentors did for me. They guided me through a process that was new to me. They had more experience in a certain area, and they shared that experience with me so I could become a better speech-language pathologist, researcher, writer, educator, and person. I count Alan as one of those valued mentors who helped me improve in a number of these areas.
