Mentor Moment: Meet Hannah Rees

By Sally Andrews Coordinator of Community Relations


Hannah Rees, an Algebra I teacher at Vidor High School, is giving something extra of herself these days. She gives up a conference period each week to mentor a young person in reading at Vidor Elementary through the Pirate Pals program.


“ When I was in middle school, I got the opportunity to have a Kinder-Buddy and I still remember, at age thirty , how much fun I had with that I had always thought it would be cool to be able to do something like this as an adult, so when I heard that the district was going to do a Pirate Pal program, I knew I had to do it! “ says Rees. She says she has seen her Pirate Pal’s confidence and love for reading grow since they first began reading together in October .
