After one of the school visits, a couple of young students (with their teacher’s permission) asked if I would take a look at the stories they had submitted to their teacher for some writing project. I agreed. I was blown away by how well they wrote and what great imagination they had. I sort of critiqued their papers (because they wanted me to) and praised their work. They beamed. That’s what makes some of these school visits so rewarding.
