Teaching Professions help pick out summer reads!
Whitmer Teaching Profession juniors helped Wernert Elementary students at Barnes & Noble. The elementary students earned a trip to Barnes & Noble through Wernert's Book Tree Project. The Teaching Professions juniors volunteered to help the elementary students with picking out and reading the book of their choice.
(Pictured below: Lamis Younes, junior Teaching Professions student, helps a third grader from Wernert read a book.)
