Reading dog becomes students’ best friend in English class

Wyoming Junior High English teacher Shantel VanderGalien has given her students a new reading companion this year: Quinn the greyhound. VanderGalien brings her newly adopted dog to school, offering a canine ear as students read aloud and curl up with books in the classroom next to the big-eyed pooch. VanderGalien, the Region 3 Teacher of the Year, says she has seen her students’ grades improve and their excitement for class increase thanks to Quinn.
