Rosie may seem quiet during the day, but at night she's a brilliant inventor of gizmos and gadgets who dreams of becoming a great engineer. When her great-great-aunt Rose (Rosie the Riveter) comes for a visit and mentions her one unfinished goal--to fly--Rosie sets to work building a contraption to make her aunt's dream come true. But when her contraption doesn't fl y but rather hovers for a moment and then crashes, Rosie deems the invention a failure. On the contrary, Aunt Rose inisists that Rosie's contraption was a raging success. You can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit.

Happy to be involved with the creation of BookMentors. Not a big reader of books lately... but read a lot when I was younger.

I am in my 7th year of teaching and my second year with first graders. I teach in a low income-high special needs urban school. The only thing I love more than teaching and playing with my students every day is coming home to my wife and 2 children. I can't imagine doing anything other than teaching. I love trying new things in my classroom to make it the best place for students to play, learn, grow, and have fun.
