Thank you for allowing me to kick-off Read Across America with you Plum City!
Mr. Jake's 3rd grade class made my trip to Los Angeles in February super special. Check out these young artists in action:
Thanks to the tireless efforts of an amazing parent volunteer I got the chance to kick of the RDLS Readathon! This school is packed with excited learners and teachers. One amazing super power we discussed? The ability to speak more than one language. Guess what? These kids are VERY POWERFUL!!
During a school visit in December I got to learn a thing or two about heroes from the Jackson Mighty Girls. These young ladies are growing into confident leaders thanks to one dedicated and passionate teacher.
She told me, "This is a truly inspirational story and a wonderful portrayal of how one person can make a difference. Our kiddos need to hear those and understand that they have more power than they think."
Don't you wish she was your teacher too?
