Mid-day Mentoring volunteer, PepsiCo.
WITS had the pleasure of catching up with Amy Sanders, a School-Day Mentoring volunteer. Amy volunteers with her company, Quaker Pepsi Co., and reads with Tiesha from Jenner Elementary once a week. Amy is now in her fifth year as a WITS volunteer!
The duo took a break from reading to chat with a WITS staff member:
A: Tiesha is very sweet and friendly. She works really hard on her reading and has improved tremendously over the last year. Oops, you said one word...Sweet.
If you could be any storybook character, who would you be?
T: I'd be Cat Woman.
T: I want to be a teacher because I like to learn.
WITS is incredibly grateful for Amy's continued dedication as a volunteer. Her passion and guidance are directly impacting Chicago's youth. To find out ways you can be involved with WITS, check out our various programs and read to a child today!
