Be in the GeoMentor Spotlight! 

The spotlight is a brief Q&A to help build the GeoMentor community, add faces and personalities to the concept of 'GeoMentors' in order to facilitate connections with teachers, and encourage others to participate as GeoMentors.  These spotlights will be posted on our program website, online communities, and social media.  If you are interested in being featured, please send your responses to the short set of questions below to  We are excited to learn more about our GeoMentor community members!

If you aren't a GeoMentor yet, we'd love to have you participate!
