Lolita Claire "Lola", Certified Therapy Dog

Lola and I are a Certified Therapy Team.  Lola will be visiting my classroom periodically to assist with classes as well as individual and group sessions.

Social Benefits:

  • Students build self-esteem, confidence, and social skills.
  • Fosters feelings of safety and acceptance.
  • Teaches to give rather than receive.
  • Trusting relationships are formed.

Research also shows that therapy dogs are beneficial to students who have a difficult time with reading fluency and reading comprehension.  Lola will be available for students that need extra encouragement and confidence to become a great reader.
