John C Birdlebough students recently traveled back in time to Michael A Maroun Elementary as part of a mentoring program.
Several JCB juniors and seniors participated in the event, pairing up in twos and shadowing a teacher’s class for the day.
For 12th grade Megan Brown, who has aspirations of becoming a Child and Family therapist, the day provided great insight into the field of childcare.
“It is so fun,” said Brown. “I absolutely love being here with these kids.”
The elementary students also gain an inspirational mentor for the day, someone that they can look up to and follow by example.
But some students took more of a trip down memory lane than others.
Senior Mikaila Mills visited Lucille Mercer’s class, who used to be her kindergarten teacher.
The two were delighted to spend some time together and reminisce over old grade school photographs.
Mercer has taught kindergarten for 30 years
