Author Visit, Mount Vernon Elementary School, Bakersfield, CA
Welcome Sign, Mount Vernon Elementary School, Bakersfield, CA
On Monday of this week I had an excellent author visit at Mount Vernon Elementary School in Bakersfield, California where I was greeted with a colorful welcome banner. I did three large assemblies for students in kindergarten through sixth grade and a shorter assembly for the afternoon pre-kindergarten children. I was impressed by the enthusiasm of the students during my program and the excellent questions they asked during the question period at the end.
Signing books in the library
In the middle of the day I had the chance to meet some of the students in the library during the book signing time. Each one seemed thrilled to be taking home a new book personally signed by the author. I thank Tina Zito, the Academic Coach, for doing an excellent job of organizing the day and making sure that everything ran smoothly. I also thank her for a very tasty lunch in the teacher’s lounge and for the delicious cakes she ordered to share with the teachers and celebrate Authors Day. Altogether, it was a very successful Author Day!
