Thank you SO much for this AMAZING opportunity! I have enjoyed every presentation and have learned so much! I am inspired and motivated, things I had not felt in a while with the pandemic.

I have been reading books presented through this lecture series with my second grade students. We have all been loving the stories. So glad this class was offered online.
I’ve really enjoyed this class and will definitely be signing up for more. I also appreciate being able to access the class online with Zoom. Since I’m out of the area, I wouldn’t have been able to participate in person, so thank you. I’ve enjoyed listening to the various authors.
I have been hoping to take this class for a very long time, but haven't because I could not get to the Portland area in the evenings. I was thrilled that my school supported me to be able to take this class. It has been very inspiring and has reignited some creative sparks in my teaching.
Thank you so much for such an enjoyable experience meeting all of the wonderful authors!
This online lecture series was fabulous. This year, teaching has been so hard. This author series has rejuvenated my desire to continue teaching using some wonderful new books.
