Author Visits Elementary School

Michelle Markel

Children's book author Michelle Markel visited the elementary school and presented a writing workshop for third, fourth and fifth grade students.

Students learned about the stories that inspired Markel to become a writer. 

She shared the writing process with students and as a group they worked together to create a short paragraph.  

Markel is the author of many books including Brave Girl and The Fantastic Jungles of Henri Rousseau.  


Students in Mrs. Burrell and Mrs. Schepis' classes created a thank you card and presented it to the author.
