This is a short post to extend our utmost thanks to author Tom Angleberger for generously offering up free thirty minute Skype visits to the galaxy last month. I could hardly believe my good fortune at seeing his tweet. After a quick text to a colleague to confirm her class's availability, I was able to secure a spot for us on his calendar.
As the class entered the library today, you could sense the excitement. From the moment Tom Angleberger appeared on screen he entertained and engaged our students. The air was supercharged with his energy. He spoke about his books, talked about his favorite books by other authors, made a list of the students' favorite books, taught us how to make Origami Yoda and answered student questions.
I know it will be a day for all the students to remember. I know their teacher, Mrs. Madison, and I will not forget it. Amazing you are, Tom Angleberger!
