Every year, a group of dedicated and creative volunteers in the greater community of Rochester, MI, organize an astounding educational experience for children, teachers, and families in their schools called Authors in April. I was honored to be chosen as an “Authors in April” author for grades 2-3 this year and have been overwhelmed with the quality of the program they create.
When Covid-19 closed schools, the AiA team had to scramble to adapt . . . which meant so much more work for them than the already huge amount of effort that would ordinarily be necessary. Through their efforts, I was able to connect via video and zoom with 15 schools.
My thanks to entire AiA board, below, and to all the teachers and school staff, parents, and community supporters. The people who make up this organization are facilitating so much more than an annual experience, they are facilitating life-long learning.
