In Nov, 2008 I had a wonderful visit to Hamilton Traditional School in South Bend, IN. Curriculum leader Marcia LaBelle brought me in. The school was decked with creative art and writing related to my books. Classrooms I visited were doing in-depth writing, using some of my books as structural models. Principal Dennis Giden and his staff were impressive. I was able to stay and work with them in a brief workshop after school. You’ll be seeing their students’ art and educational innovation in several other posts I am linking to my books. Thank you, Hamilton Students and Faculty!
