The entire Whitby School community celebrated read aloud day on Wednesday, with special visits to the school’s Lake Avenue campus from State Rep Livvy Floren, Greenwich Fire Marshal Sean O’Donnell, Greenwich Police officer Yolanda Greenhall and former Stamford Mayor Pavia.
Mrs. Floren brought along a book called My Teacher for President. and introduced it by asking the children whether they were aware a presidential election is in the making, and whether they’d heard the names Sanders, Cruz and Trump.
The children, albeit just first and second graders, were quite aware, and, in fact, had some opinions formed!
With that, Mrs. Floren jumped into the book, written from the point of view of a young child recommending their teacher for president of the United States.
“My teacher loves white houses. My teacher is used to being followed around everywhere. When my teacher walks into a room, people pay attention. …She deals with media attention every day.”
After reading the book to the eager children, Mrs. Floren donated the book to the school library and even gave out Livvy Floren pencils to everyone.
