As soon as I get my suitcase zipped, I am heading for the airport for a week's worth of school visits and other events in Ohio. After a year of planning, I'll finally get to meet Bill Prosser, librarian at Mary Emma Bailey Elementary, the man behind Literate Lives (Bill warned me to brush up on my state capitals. . .I better practice on the plane) and Michele Meyer, the Botkins Elementary teacher who wrangled her last year's sixth graders into doing a entire week of events around Hattie Big Sky.
