We’ve had an incredible and amazing summer so far! Carmen has been all over the country, but a few highlights have been spending time at the Michigan Reading Association Conference, Columbia University’s Teachers College, and the International Baccalaureate Conference of the Americas. Here are a few photos and tweets from some of the participants. Thank you all! Carmen has loved spending time with you.
