Hillcrest Elementary students enjoyed an author visit with Caroline Moss this week. Ms. Moss writes the, "Work it Girl" series, which are biographies about strong women. Currently, she has published books about JK Rowling and Oprah Winfrey, and in the future, she will be publishing books about Michelle Obama, Mae Jamison, Vera Wang and Beyonce Knowles. Ms. Moss spoke about becoming a writer and told students about how they too could become writers. She also shared about her favorite authors from when she was a fifth grader. As part of our Grade 5 curriculum, students are learning about biographies, so the children were especially interested in this visit.
