Ah, I wish I could have been there. It was obviously a fun-filled day - for EVERYBODY.
We're famous!! :) What a great time we had. How exciting it was for the children to meet and learn from a poet they admire! It was especially rewarding for students to actually ask Mr. Sottile the questions they had been wondering about his poems as we discussed and read them before his visit. I would recommend a visit from him to any teacher of writing or elementary aged children. We had a blast! Can't wait to show these pictures to the children on Monday. Thank you, Mr. Sottile!
Two very positive comments above! Wow! I will tell you this about Jacquie McTaggart has a book on Amazon.com that every teacher and parent with elementary kids could benefit from. Please look it up...Secondly, Mrs. Jessica Hoffend is a very talented teacher. And how do I know? I saw her bulletin boards; I visited her classroom; I enjoyed her students; I listened how she spoke to her students, and she always did it in a positive manner, even if she was disciplining others. Mrs. Jessica Hoffend is a "keeper" for the Greece School System!!!
The word "who" should follow "Jacquie McTaggart" in the above comment. She is much better than I am on proofreading. I still need to proofread more and more. Both ladies, Mrs. Jacquie McTaggart and Mrs. Hoffend are both talented and wonderful ladies.
