Posted on: February 19, 2019

Wednesday, February 20th, 2019

1:05 – 1:50 p.m. in Takena’s Library

On Wednesday, February 20th, students and staff at Takena and Central Elementary Schools will have the opportunity to spend time with children’s advocate and award-winning author Trudy Ludwig.

Trudy has been featured in US national media outlets including ABC’s Good Morning America;  PBS’s nationally syndicated show, Keeping Kids Healthy; Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, and the National Crime Prevention Council’s Circle of Respect program. She has also served as an expert panel member on Sesame Workshop’s video series addressing bullying.

The invisible Boy book cover.Her books (My Secret Bully, Just Kidding, Sorry!, Trouble Talk®, Too Perfect, Confessions of a Former Bully, Better Than You, The Invisible Boy, Gifts from the Enemy, and her newest release, Quiet Please, Owen McPhee!) have received international praise for addressing friendship and bullying issues and for helping children in kindergarten through grade eight connect and engage with their peers in kinder, more inclusive ways. 

Trudy will present to our students, with assemblies at each school. She presents in grade clusters (i.e., Kindergarten – grade 2; grades 3-5, respectively), so that she can address friendship issues and social peer cruelty in an age-appropriate manner. She will also provide a staff in-service presentation later that day to help them in their ongoing efforts to promote a safe social-emotional learning environment for our students.

For more information about Trudy, her books, and other resources on the topics of friendship and bullying issues, please visit the author’s website: www.trudyludwig.com.

We wish to give special thanks to the Central/Takena’s Parent/Teacher Association and the Albany Public Schools Foundation for making this author visit possible.
