Senior Mary Kathryn Mazell participated in a University sponsored program where Elementary education students presented their self-written books to second graders at Irmo Elementary School. The college students have worked in the classroom with the young students since August as part of their in-service training. During this time, the students wrote, and in some cases illustrated, books about each child in hopes of fostering a love or writing and reading from an early age. As part of its curriculum, College of Education students spend between one to two semesters in classrooms of public schools around the Midlands working directly with young students alongside veteran teachers.
