It's Teacher Appreciation Week! Kristin Ziemke & Katie Muhtaris Recall Their Favorite Teachers


Happy Teacher Appreciation Week from Heinemann! Each day this week on the blog, we'll feature videos of our authors recounting an important lesson or memory from their favorite teacher. Today, Kristin Ziemke and Katie Muhtaris, coauthors of the forthcoming Engage, Inspire, Empower, remember their favorite teachers from their formative years. 

Kristin remembers her first grade teacher, whose influence on Kristin turned her to a life of reading instruction.


Katie Muhtaris shares about a memorable Spanish and Language Arts teacher.
