Please Welcome... Author Steve Cotler

Steve Cotler, author of the "Cheesie Mack" series visited River Ridge!  The fifth graders really enjoyed his story telling and participated in a character study of Cheesie and Georgie.  He encouraged the students to never give up and practice what you love because you are never perfect at first!  He even had to rewrite his first book 8 times!
