Bruce’s message of persistence, practice, and hard work to achieve one’s dream is a wonderful lesson that the kids will remember for years to come.

Students were engaged and inspired. They continue to eagerly read his books, and some have stated that they want to follow in his footsteps and write. He is officially our school’s ‘favorite author.’

Hearing from a published author about his own process validated the work students are doing. His visit brought together the key elements we hope to accentuate during Book Week — a love of reading, a love of writing, and a celebration of the stories that connect us.

Our school enjoyed a great day with Bruce Hale. The students were captured by his storytelling, and his positive message, to Dream Big, rang in their ears as they left.

Bruce was able to engage even our most challenging students with his humor and ability to offer them writing strategies they could easily access. Our staff watched in awe as the full range of our writers, from reluctant to passionate, jumped in and tried out his suggestions for creating a strong narrative.
