Northwest Professional Educators is celebrating Dr. Seuss’ Read Across America this week with personal visits and readings by the Cat in the Hat himself! Actually, Brenda Miller, NWPE regional director, is showing up dressed to the tee for the occasion!
Dressed as one of Dr. Seuss’s silly characters, Brenda read at the following schools:
East Elementary School, Mountain Home (7 K-2 classes).
Thank you to Principal Karen Gordon for her help organizing the readings. Also involved were teachers Deborah Freeman, Elizabeth Mosley, Lisa Stover-Russell, and Shana Hennessey and Jessica Petty (shown with Brenda below) and Lisa Stover-Russell. Seuss classics like Cat in the Hat, The Cat in the Hat Comes Back, The Foot Book, Green Eggs and Ham, and Fox in Socks were read. Students actively participated by reading repeated pattern phrases and sounds. Brenda provided Dr. Seuss related goodie bags and cupcakes for the entire staff.
Thank you to Jeannette Mayes who helped arrange for Brenda’s readings at Roosevelt and to Principal Shawn Tegethoff who supported the event. NWPE provided treats and Dr. Seuss goodie bags to the staff.
Working alongside Melissa McPhetridge and Dean Rollins , Brenda participated in the school's Dr. Seuss on the Loose event.
They gave readings to students and parents as the Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2. The NWPE sponsored photo booth was one of the many activities included in the evening's fun agenda.
Thank you to all who supported these reading events to stimulate a love for reading and the comical, colorful Dr. Seuss, a true literary gem!
