School Visit: Wilson & Kelly, WY

(Top: Me with Wilson School students, Bottom: Me with Kelly School students)
On somewhat short notice, I was asked to be the writing instructor for a group of high school students visiting the Teton Science School in Jackson Hole, WY from St. Louis, MO. Principia Upper School has been running this art, science and writing trip for juniors and seniors since 1986, and I applied and got to go when I was in high school, in 1993 & 1994. So it was a real treat to get to come back as an instructor. As long as I was coming out to Jackson Hole, I thought I would see if any schools would be interested in an author vist. So I flew out a couple days early and spent this morning at Wilson Elementary, and the afternoon at Kelly School. Both schools were working on their own book projects in their classrooms, so they could relate very well to the talks I gave. The groups weren’t too big, so I got to answer most of their questions. They had some good suggestions for book topics too! I would love to write a journal book about the Tetons!
