Welcome to Room #22

We had a video chat with TAYLOR SWIFT this week. She talked to us about the importance of reading and writing. Some students are also entering a writing/essay contest to win tickets to an upcoming concert. Next week we will have a video conference with USHER. It was awesome to hear her thoughts and love of reading!

Taylor talked about how she started to journal at age 13 and this led to her love of poetry and song writing.
