Randolph-Henry High School (R-H) Teachers for Tomorrow read to Phenix Elementary students for Reading month. Rhonda Benn, head of the group, coordinated with Phenix Elementary Librarian Allyson Watkins, to arrange the event. On Thursday, Oct. 20, 12 students, Dr. Robbie Mason, and Benn came to Phenix Elementary School. They were greeted and escorted to the classes by the fifth grade Safety Patrol students. Each of the 12 students read to a designated classroom a grade level appropriate book. Many of the books had an inspirational message for the students. In addition to reading the book, they each provided a hands-on learning activity for the children. Mason read not only to first grade, but to pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students as well. The Phenix school community enjoyed the R-H students sharing time with them. The group, Teachers of Tomorrow, are very talented young adults. The future of education certainly looks brighter because of these students’ eagerness and desire to enter the teaching profession. “It is so important to grow our own for the future of the teaching profession in Charlotte County Public Schools,” Mason said. “It is wonderful to know that R-H is investing in the future.”
