Reading Groups: An Indie Writer’s Dream
There are good teachers and there are outstanding teachers. Some teachers are willing to support a new writer and others are not, although I haven’t met any yet.
There’s a exemplary school in Columbia, Missouri–Ridgeway Elementary School.
Have you heard of it?

Ridgeway Elementary School teaches using individual guided education program. Both of our daughters were educated at Ridgeway. Ridgeway students understand how to learn, study and learn.
Although it is not a magnet or charter school, it works much like one.
There is a wonderful 4/5th grade teacher there, Maria Cox, who asked to use my book with her reading groups.
Emphatically, I said yes!
I was invited to Ridgeway and spoke to these great students about my book as well. You gotta give these kids some credit. It was a very warm room and nearing lunch time. They sat quietly and asked terrific questions.
I could tell Mrs. Cox had prepared the students for the occasion.
