WSU student teachers visit Highland Elementary for Easter fun

CLARKSTON, WA - WSU student teachers only have about three weeks left before graduation, and two of them are making some lasting memories at a local elementary school.

Easter festivities kicked off a little early for two first grade classes at Highland Elementary. An Easter egg hunt, dying eggs and making baskets were just part of the daily activities. Student teachers Cori Nip and Crystina Pettet reflect on the day and their time at the school.

"What I like most about days like this is just that the kids are really excited," said Nip "They love being here and it gives them an opportunity to do something that they may or may not get to do at home. They're really enriched here and they just have a lot of fun."

"The teachers are great and it's such a great environment and they're always willing to help you with anything you need, any questions," said Pettet. "Give you different opportunities so I love it here. I'm glad I got this school, it's been great."

WSU students have been active in classrooms since January, and both women will graduate this May.
