NEW YORK –- Kula’s a teacher, but her work in the classroom is a little bit different than most educators’. She has a purpose without having a purpose. Sometimes she’s there for a specific lesson and other times, she’s there -- just to be a… more ›

I am one of Mrs. Kellogg's students and I see Kula almost every day! She is so much fun and makes everyone happy! Not everyone has a dog, yet everyone loves Kula.

I think this is great. I wish I would have had a dog/cat/animal with us in the classroom too.

I would have liked to have a pet in class when I was young. This sounds like a fun idea to engage the kids

My sisters are teachers and they notice a marked improvement in student behavior when they have class pets. It's amazing how quickly a student will shape up for the reward of cleaning the rabbit cage. Pets teach children about compassion, unconditional love, responsiblity,... The world needs more of these character lessons. Thank you to the Administration of the schools who accept and appreciate pets in the classroom.

I LOVE this story. As a teacher, we bring in pets for our children. It teaches them about respect and responsibility and a host of other things. Creatures to help overcome fears etc. Some children do NOT have a family who believes that an animal can do these things, or are cost prohibitive. Having a pet in the classroom truly brings home this message. It would be interesting to have a principle that allows us to bring our dogs in ...... Maybe one day.... Maybe I need to do something about that!! LOL

Every school and every classroom should be able to share this experience. We take our education dog to every class we can, but the familiarity of a regular pet to hold and visit with is a very special thing. Good job!

Neat story. Our kids are lucky to be in a school where dogs are welcomed. They have a counselor who brings her dog and often have dog "reading buddies." Makes a huge difference in the classroom.

I see this as a very good thing for the kids. Not all kids are lucky enough to have a pet like this in their home. I think all schools should do this.

What a great article. What's so great about this too, is many kids don't get to have pets at home, so they may not understand the true enjoyment and meaning of pet companionship. Now they will!

I think it's good, especially for those students whose knowledge of dogs comes mainly from movies, to see how they are in the real world.

This is a great idea. If there was a dog coming to my school once a week when I was a kid, I definitely would have been more interested in school.At least once a week anyway.

This is such a great story. I know a "reading to dogs" program has become popular in many schools - the dogs don't care if the kids can't pronounce a word or stutter sometimes. I wish more schools would realize that companion animals can really play a great role in the classroom.

Kids should be taught to interact with and respect animals early in life. Then maybe we wouldn't have so many cruel people in this world.

Pets are amazing and dogs are great at loving unconditionally. Plus, it also teaches the kids how to be kind and loving towards animals.

There were days when the only person who i felt was really there for me was my belated Barclay. Children in todays world should get the chance to feel the unconditional love that a dog can give even if it lasts only in the classroom. For some, that dog can be the reason a child gets out of bed in the morning.

I used to work with a teacher who had a dog in her room. It was a pricey deal and she had a grant to do it.
I had a "therapy guinea pig" in my room, and one assistant principal made the biggest stink and tried to make me get rid of it.
It is amazing the difference animals can make in the lives of children. Look at teh difference it has made for all of us as adults!

What a wonderful news story.......I wish every school could have a dog. (I just feel sorry for the poor kids who might be allergic, they can never know the love of a dog.)

Yes, it's a nice story and a great way for kids to learn, but the dog eating chewing gum is not good. I'm wondering why this is something that's considered okay?

Dogs are an excellent addition to the classroom. At our elementary school one of the kindergarten teachers brings in her basset hound Lucy. The whole school loves her.
