Ty Allen Jackson visits Merrick-Moore

Ty Allan Jackson, an award-winning children’s book author, literacy advocate, visited our First Graders on December 4th.  He is also co-founder of the Read or Else Movement 

He shared insights into being a children's book author and read some of his wonderful work to us. His enthusiasm and energy was amazing and many students left the event eager to read and write more wonderful stories! 

His enthusiasm rubbed off on one first grader as they shared, “I want to be an author when I grow up and I am writing a book right now today!"
