My daughters are gearing up for school in a few weeks. Their anxiety and excitement about teachers and friends brings me right back to my own school days. I often find myself reflecting on all of the amazing teachers I’ve had over the years, especially those that had the ability to bring diverse classes together. I think I learned some of my most important lessons from them.
A few months ago, Scholastic asked me to do an illustration about a favorite teacher for their Reading Club calendar, and I jumped at the opportunity. You’ll find me in September—and I’m in great company as you’ll see from the thumbnails on the front of the calendar. See/read about one of my very most favorite teachers below.
