During the month of March, State Rep. Andrea Schroeder of Independence Township, visited classrooms throughout Independence and Waterford Townships as part of March is Reading Month. This month is a great way to encourage students to enhance their education by reading daily.
“I always look forward to opportunities where I can visit classrooms and get back to my roots as a former teacher,” Rep. Schroeder said. “I was honored to be welcomed by my local schools to meet so many talented and gifted teachers, students, and administrative staff throughout March.”
Rep. Schroeder visited eight schools across our community and read to over 1,000 students. She hopes activities like this will help foster a love of books in students that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
