My author visit at Hope Sullivan Elementary on Friday, January 20, 2012 was a great success! This was my first visit to Southaven, Mississippi, and I spoke to over 630 students in three presentations.
9:00 – 9:30 Kindergarten
9:40 – 10:10 1st Grade
10:20 – 11:05 2nd Grade
The faculty and staff were very involved on every level. The principal, assistant principal, and librarian encouraged students to participate, and they did! Their enthusiasm was uplifting, and I did not leave empty-handed. A teacher, Jan Hoselton, presented me with art created by her kindergarten students.
Thank you, Ms. Hoselton, for giving me their wonderful pictures. Here are a few of my favorites…
Mikaela loves Tiny Snail. I love her picture (above).
Logan combined my name with Tiny Snail’s (above). ‘Tamy Snail’ has a nice ring to it!
I also love AJ’s Tiny Snail. He even drew a colorful version of Miss Butterfly (below).
Hope Sullivan students, keep writing and drawing!
