Teacher Appreciation C E L E B R A T I O N Day #3


Back in February, I had the great pleasure of chatting with a wonderful teacher, Matthew Winner. He is also the genius behind The Let’s Get Busy Podcast where he interviews Authors, illustrators, and other members of the kid lit community.

Chatting with Matthew was such a pleasure. Even though we’d only met on the phone it was like chatting with an old friend. I’m posting our chat as part of my celebration of teachers this week because as Matthew described it, “It’s a hands down love fest for the work of great teachers in our schools and the thankless work that they have dedicated to their passion.”

Here it is:

    Audiobooks rock! My teachers and students love audio books. I don’t have the funding to provide audiobooks for our library. Thank you for doing this giveaway!

    Audiobooks are how I survived an hour long (each way) commute my first three years of teaching!

    I’m ending the year on the high note of reading FISH IN A TREE with my students. The audio and booksmarks would be such a special thing I love watching them see authors come to life in their minds!
