Kearsley will dedicate a book nook in honor of the late Armstrong Middle School teacher Mrs. Leann Wartella in the AMS Media Center from 3 to 5 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 12.

In memorial of the late middle school teacher Mrs. Leann Wartella, Kearsley Community Schools is dedicating a book nook in the Armstrong Middle School Media Center.

The dedication will be Wednesday, Feb. 12, from 3 to 5 p.m., in the AMS Media Center.

Guests attending the dedication are asked to bring a hardcover book to donate to the book nook.

Refreshments will be provided during the dedication.

Senior Delanie Schreiber had Wartella for seventh- and eighth-grade honors English.

Schreiber believes Wartella would appreciate the book nook.

“I think she would be happy with any dedication to reading and literacy because she just loved to spread the love of reading and knowledge,” Schreiber said.

Schreiber remembers how Wartella taught her classes.

“I remember back in middle school she would let us vote in class to decide what we would like to do,” Schreiber said, “like maybe we were tired of reading logs or we wanted to read a different class book.

“Her class was really the first experience of independence for a lot of us seniors (who were in her class) because she really cared about us and trusted us.”
