GARNETT — Reading classes at Anderson County Junior High School are going to the dogs – or rather to a dog named Thyme. Thyme is a social therapy dog that goes to school every day to help students who have trouble reading. Seventh-grade English teacher Linda Detwiler came up with the idea and researched it. Detwiler told the Anderson County Review that students who struggle to read find it relaxing and enjoyable to read to Thyme and she enjoys being read to. Thyme started going to the school this year. She said she has noticed a difference among readers who read to Thyme.
