Here's wishing you a great year in teaching! I have
just published my first children's book, and using my
talents as a Reading Specialist have developed
interdisciplinary activities, as well as before, during,
and after reading activities for the classroom. There are
vocabulary activities and opportunities for your students
to write to me about the book and its characters. I am
glad to respond to those letters at your request.
A physical disability permits me from teaching in the
classroom anymore, so I am reaching out to students this
way. The main goal of this book is also the part of my job
I miss the most: instilling a love of reading and learning
in each student.
I can visit your classroom by Skype, if you wish, and
our website is about to go online. There, you will be able
to access the acitivities I spoke of earlier. The obok is
called Harley Hits a Homer, and I am so pleased with the
positive way it is being received in the classrooms where
it is being used.
I'd love to hear from you if you think we could work
together on this project. I'd love to hear from your
classes and to interact with them. I look forward to
hearing from you soon.
Let's keep them reading,
