Mrs. P writing contest for classrooms,

Writing Contest for Elementary Students

What a small world! I went to KidLitCon in 2012 and I met exactly one teacher there. There were tons of librarians and authors, but just one mom blogger (me) and one teacher (I think).

She was really nice and showed me how to set up a Wiki right on her computer during lunch one day. She taught 4 subjects in the equivalent of a 1 room school house in rural Iowa. I was so impressed with how she connected her kids with author visits via Skype, all for free! Her name? Karla Duff … and then I find out through Mrs. P’s Be-a-Famous Writer Contest that she is a judge of Mr.s P’s Writing Contest for Elementary Students!

Small world, right?!
