The students at Eisenhower Elementary and their Digital Learning Specialist, Mrs. Boggs, got to SKYPE with author, Dan Gutman. He is the author of several popular books including The Kid Who Ran for President, My Weird School, and Jackie & Me. Prior to his visit the students worked with Mrs. Boggs on researching his books and the topics contained in the books, learned what it takes to be an author, and read several of his books. It was an amazing visit, and the students got to ask him questions that they created from their research.
At the Gateway Library Mrs. Lewis's elementary students got meet with Mrs. Dani Barkey who taught them all about being an artist. The students have been researching and learning about their dream jobs, and today they learned what it takes to be an artist and graphic designer. Mrs. Barkey also took time to share and read one of her favorite books to the students.
