On September 17, our Wolfpack WORKS team had the opportunity to interact with the wonderful Pat Mora! Dr. Mora is an honored poet and children’s book author. To learn more about her work, please visit http://www.patmora.com/.
Dr. Mora, who earned an honorary doctorate from NC State University, presented to and engaged with many members of our College of Education. She talked with our Elementary Education program students, graduate students, faculty, community members, and our Wolfpack WORKS coaches and leadership team members!
Our Wolfpack WORKS team members had the privilege of sharing coffee and conversations with Dr. Mora on Tuesday morning. We were inspired by her work, and she was inspired by the work we are doing with beginning teachers and children through Wolfpack WORKS!
In the words of Dr. Mora, “Together, all of us who value all our children can work together to create a diverse reading nation, proclaiming again and again that literacy is essential in a democracy.” We cherish the opportunity we had to engage with Dr. Mora during her time with us!
