Classroom Visits

Fairview School’s Community Read-In is back and that makes me happy. Ever since I worked at the Orland Free Library, I have enjoyed visiting Fairview School in the Spring for the Community Read-In. All kinds of adults come to read and talk about books with the kids — police officers, firefighters, business owners, city officials, park rangers, and even librarians.

Fairview School hasn’t had a Read-In since 2019. Now it’s 2023 and I am looking forward to it — next week on April 6.

I visit 4th grade classes and talk about California history. How did people get to California? What did it take to make the journey? What did California look like when John Bidwell arrived here in 1841?

It’s so much fun to talk to the students. They ask great questions. They have imaginative ideas. I always have a good time.

If you are a teacher, or if you know a 4th grade teacher who would like a visitor to give a presentation about California history, please get in touch. I don’t charge anything as long as the school is in my area (Butte, Glenn, or Tehama Counties). I might want some gas money if I’m visiting a school further afield. 🙂
