Meet Mr. Schu: “Xtreme Librarian” and Invited Speaker for the 2018 CCIRA Conference. If you are a CCIRA enthusiast, you’re probably already wondering who will be at the 2018 Conference. . . Here’s a sneak peek of an invited speaker who is new to our conference—a true representative of the DaVinci-inspired educator at the heart of Literacy Renaissance: Invention, Intention, and Close Study.
Kristine Mraz is a kindergarten teacher and author whose joyfulness for teaching our youngest learners is palpable. She is the perfect example of a modern day DaVinci educator—fascinated by the way kids think, determined to discover the most effective ways of engaging and growing minds. She appreciates what makes kindergarteners tick, and she strives to design the magical learning experiences that our students deserve.
