March is typically my busiest month visiting schools. Last week, I logged in almost a thousand miles of driving to and fro, hither and yon from southern Massachusetts to waaaaay up in Maine. On the same day!
I am incredibly fortunate to be able to do what I do for a living. I'm thankful for it every day (except when I'm sitting in traffic on my way to a school - then my thankfulness is sorely tested, I admit).
Here is a photographic essay of some of my thrilling adventures in the past few weeks.
|Authorfest 2013 at Greenwood Elementary. I'm in good company at this cool event!|
|Some awesome stories created by Mr. Cormier's class at Sanbornton Elementary. Mr. Cormier was even working on a sweet blues version of this book.|
|And the kindergarten classes at Sanbornton Elementary made the cool trees based on Fall Is Not Easy.|
And, if that weren't enough, the principal made me a delicious lunch.Yup.
|The librarian at Sanbornton Elementary made a great looking bulletin board with a familiar face on it...|
|My space at the Massachusetts State Librarian Association conference in Sturbridge, MA. It looked good for a few minutes.|
|Then this guy showed up. This is Jef Czekaj (pronounced "Jeff") a hilarious author and illustrator who may have the most amazing sweater in the universe.|
|Seriously. That is not normal. It was a fun morning hanging out with him.|
Next week is another full week of visits and I couldn't be happier.
