In fourth grade at Parkside the children do a biography book report. They choose a person, study them and then dress up and report to their class. MaryAnne was Phillis Wheatley. She practiced hard and learned her speech. She knew it well and didn't even need her notecards. I think she really liked dressing up in her costume that we made for her. She did a great job being Phillis Wheatley. I was very proud of you MaryAnne!
