    Rachel Vail Skype visit

    Ms. Moore's 7A students enjoy a fun and informative visit with author Rachel Vail. She's written a number of titles we have in our library. Be sure to check them out. Unfriended and Well, That Was Awkward are recent titles that have been circulating with SMS students. Not only did she offer tips to help us develop as writers, but she also shared tips to help us develop our spying techniques. Shhh, don't tell.
