Dear Teachers
I met a lot of teachers last week at April is for Authors in Palm Beach Gardens. Teachers who took their Saturday off to bring students to hear authors talk about their books and writing. You know I'm a fan of TED talks so when this week's program arrived this morning I chose to listen to the one by Rita Pierson. It was worth it, and I want to send it on the teachers and media specialists I met. You are Rita Pierson to your students, and it was an honor to meet you.

Mr. Vickers, my Rita Pierson
