February 1st Aubrey Elementary Visit.
I received a wonderfully warm welcome. The students were attentive and responsive. The children had wonderful comments during my presentations as well as afterwards when they came up to me for a quick chat. I presented three times so, in all, probably spoke to about 150 children during the course of the day. I had a great time there and hopefully, we brought more understanding for the need of literacy for all wherever they may live.
