I started SIM apprenticeship in June of 2019 until June 2020. I feel like my mentor will be able to support me into the future. The experience at the SIM™ institute last summer exceeded all expectations. The presenters were well prepared. They led by example and careful attention was paid to every detail of learning. I immediately wanted to be able to offer my future participants a similar experience. Helen Barrier is my mentor. She has so much expertise and is always willing to share her experience and information. She supported me through planning and delivering my first few presentations and overviews. Helen is always available to talk through concerns and brainstorm ideas for overcoming perceived hurdles. The feedback she provides help me grow as a presenter, teacher, and learner. She has a way of distilling a lot of information into what is most essential to understand. I was able to integrate her confirming and corrective feedback into future SIM™ presentations. I always hear her voice whispering in my ear, nudging me to remember the principles of adult learning and think of creative ways to engage my participants. Jocelyn Washburn was able to provide support through planning and presenting a SIM™ presentation and overview. Jocelyn has a wealth of experience and knowledge. She helped with resources and ideas for the presentation. She walked me through what paperwork was need to turn in and where to access it. Her down to earth personality makes her easy to approach when questions arise. Her feedback and insights helped me grow as a professional.
