If you haven’t heard, seen, or read about the incredible work Dr. Belinda Richardson-George is doing as a first-year principal of Homer Drive Elementary School in Beaumont, Texas, you’ve been missing out.
Every Tuesday evening at 7:30 pm CST, you can catch Dr. George on Facebook Live reading bedtime stories to her students, whom she addresses as scholars. In total, she has 680 scholars at her school.
Dr. George was inspired to read to her scholars by the Facebook group, Principal Principles Leadership, and her love for her students. Ninety-four percent of her students come from economically disadvantaged homes, according to an interview Dr. George did with the TODAY show, and she wanted to ensure someone was reading to them.
Sporting PJs, Dr. George always gives a shout out to her students who log in. After her reading, she will often invite the author and/or illustrator to talk about his or her book.
This coming Tuesday, May 21, I am so honored that Dr. George will be sharing No Peacocks! A Feathered Tale of Three Mischievous Foodies (Sky Pony Press) with her scholars. Just click HERE for the link.
Following Dr. George’s reading, my three mischievous dogs, Cupcake, Madeleine, and Mathilde, are planning to say a quick hello to Dr. George’s scholars and perhaps share a bite (oops! I mean word) about their favorite peacocks, Phil, Jim, and Harry.
