Pierremont School Visit
This post is long overdue. To be honest, I get nervous writing blog posts. I feel like I never know exactly what are the “right” words to say. In March, my sister and I presented Wendy on Wheels at Pierremont Elementary School, in Manchester, Missouri.
Mandy actually went to Pierremont for first grade through 4th grade. Mandy remembered climbing up a net that was still hanging in the gym.
We talked about bullying in Wendy on Wheels Takes a Stand. Mandy actually left Pierremont a bullying incident, she would rather not discuss. During question and answer time, one teacher asked Mandy is there were any differences between when she went to Pierremont and now. Mandy’s response was, “I feel more respect.”
This was a good visit! What a wonderful group of children! They had such good questions. Afterwards, Mandy texted me and said she really appreciated getting to speak at Pierremont. She had felt so many negative emotions about Pierremont for so many years. Going back to talk about her life and experience helped her to let that go. I felt so happy for her.
