The following is from a post on the Writers in the Schools blog about my first year teaching in the WITS Digital program. Here are a couple of videos about the program. One from a summer camp and one from a newscast. Game Changer I’m not a gamer, but when I heard about WITS Digital …
My last post was about the WITS Digital program, but when I wrote it I had no idea the program would land me on television. To know more about WITS Digital visit here.

I am super excited to be a part of Sassy & Dangerous’s Christmas Blog Bash. It starts December 1st and runs through the 12th. I, along with Phantom’s Dance, will be featured on the 6th, but be sure to stop by and check out the fabulous list of authors she has lined up for this holiday …
