Beck Students Reading Companion

Beck Students Reading Companion


John Beck students in Mrs. Malloy's class have been spending their October reading time on Tuesdays with a special, furry reading buddy - Maggie, the golden retriever. Her owner Mrs. Cindy Hess, works with Maggie to help promote the benefits of the animal/human bond and their therapeutic benefits. Maggie is a registered KPETS therapy dog who brings a special quality into the classroom. Because students tend to relax and enjoy sharing their reading outloud with Maggie at their side, they are more confident in their group reading and reap great benefits from the program.
