Welcome to Episode 4 of the Nerdy Bookcast!
Today on the show, you will get to hear a post from Michigan principal Jim Bailey, eavesdrop on conversation between Donalyn Miller and Colby Sharp that was recorded last spring when Donalyn visited Colby’s school and his students were at special, and Book Talks of the titles in this year’s Global Read Aloud from the creator of the Global Read Aloud herself, Pernille Ripp.
Today’s episode: “Changing the World One Book and One Reader at a Time.”
Thank you for very much for listening!
Jim Bailey is the principal at Hemmeter Elementary in Saginaw, Michigan. He has a passion for helping all students become lifelong readers. Jim spends his time reading, cheering on the Detroit Tigers, and enjoying time with his family (wife, Laura, and two sons, Evan and Griffin). He is an all-around nerd who probably spends too much time obsessing over Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Clash of Clans, and comic books. You can follow him on Twitter as @jcbailey3.
“Curing the Reading GERM” appeared on the Nerdy Bookclub on February 8, 2015.
The posts you hear on The Nerdy Bookcast originally appeared on The Nerdy Bookclub.
