Glacier Ridge Elementary is a beautiful school. I’ve had the opportunity to attend a professional workshop last spring and this fall in the building and both times I’ve been very impressed by the displays of literacy throughout the school. The dedication to reading and writing is evident everywhere.

Kelly Gallagher

This is notĀ Kelly Gallagher’sĀ finest photo but I had to include it. Once again the Literacy Connection of Columbus has offered a wonderful opportunity to teachers in Central Ohio. For $50 I was able to attend a presentation by Kelly Gallagher on Saturday from 8:30-2:30. He really touched on all of us books, but started with a keynote on Teaching Adolescent Writers. I took copious notes and was once again impressed with him-as a teacher, a presenter, and someone who is passionate and dedicated to literacy. He is a practicing teacher in Anaheim, California. I am planning on adding to this post with highlights from the notes I took as time allows this week.
