After my performances in New Jersey, I hopped in the car and traveled a little closer to home when I arrived at MC Terrell Elementary School Located in Washington, DC. For this festive occasion on February 24, 2011, the students were enjoying Literacy Night. It was a great pleasure to read for the students and meet the parents as well.
Mrs. Homesley, Principal of MC Terrell, informs the students and parents of the the evenings planned events. After their instructions, students followed me into the presentation room.
Hi everyone! I’m going to teach you how to say “Happy Birthday” in eight different languages. How many of you know how to sing Happy Birthday?
Since this was a meet and greet, I read portions of my book to the students. My presentation was shorter but still packed a powerful message of unity.
