The Coral Springs Christian Academy added on to my school visit trip at the very last minute – about a week or two before I left for Florida. I am so glad it worked out to visit with these students! I did one presentation in the afternoon with the 2nd and 3rd graders. It was a little warm, and the students were kind of squished into a small room, but even at the end of the day, the kids were very well behaved. They sat quietly and asked some really interesting questions. They are definitely getting ready for 3rd and 4th grade! We talked about writing, illustrating, inspiration, using our talents to help our communities, and doing our best work. Many of the students came up and talked with me afterwards, and I got several emails from them asking for advice about writing and getting published. Thank you, CSCA!
