The librarians, students, teachers, parents, and administrators of Pittsford, NY, wowed me with their enthusiasm for learning, for reading, and for writing. I spent a week visiting five elementary schools and loved spending time there.
Students at all the schools had creative ideas, great questions, and lots of enthusiasm.
I so enjoyed talking with teachers and gobbling up Kathy Kloc’s beautiful cookies. I loved seeing Mrs. Heinrich’s class journal, inspired by my book Please Write in this Book, and I even got to write in it. I signed a lot of books and received gifts of dark chocolate and my favorite pens!!!!
Librarians Ann Haefele, Betsy Blessington, Tami Holihan, Geri McMahon, Mary Ann Clark, Karen Wilson, and all the paras as well as the librarians on leave to have babies did a great job of preparing students.
