Pet Partners Therapy Dog Trainer Teachers: Kaley McGhee and Whitney Dreaden
Training therapy animals would provide students with the opportunity to sharpen their knowledge of animal behaviors while practicing empathy and developing social skills that can also be applied to human relationships. Not only will this program benefit the students participating in training these animals, but it can be utilized in classrooms throughout the entire school district. Providing therapy dogs in the classroom can assist with behavioral problems, improve reading comprehension, and improve the overall emotion of a student.

Buccaneer Green will also teach students philanthropy by giving the money gained from recycling to a charity of the students' choice.
