Russian Author visits Kilmer students

October 1, 2018

Topic: Student Learning

Sofia Agacher, a Russian author, visited Kilmer Elementary last week. Ms. Agacher is a modern writer who resides in Moscow and Chicago. She mostly writes for adults, however, in May 2018, she published her first children’s book Stories About Romka and His Grandma. This book was inspired by her grandson Roman living in America. The book is filled with kindness and empathy. Our students enjoyed listening to Sofia read passages from her story and actively participated in the discussion. They had time at the end of the session to ask their own questions and some students even received an autographed copy of her book. What a memorable experience for the students and teachers in our Russian bilingual classrooms!
