Workplace mentoring

I’ve been helping students from Tilton Elementary School to read better for three years, participating in the WITS program via LaSalle Bank’s Workplace Mentoring program.  Here’s Davion:

Davion is a student at Tilton Elementary here in Chicago. The school is located on the west side in an economically
depressed part of town.

Davion is a good reader, and I’m glad I get to help him read better. I’m also glad that LaSalle Bank supports the Chicago Public School system, which includes programs like this. When I grew up, I was quite lucky – my school district, outside Washington, D.C., was one of the best in the country at the time. All school districts should be that good.
