We were honored to have author Linda Ragsdale visit Longwood on May 10. Linda presented to the whole school about her books and the messages taught through them. Students learned to look for other perspectives, to celebrate their uniqueness, and how to work to avoid anger. Linda taught us that anger is like fire. We learned not to pick up someone else's fire when they are upset. If we do, the fire grows bigger and more destructive and we can't solve any problems until it cools down. Instead when someone else is angry or upset we can help them rather than get angry back. We are grateful that Mrs. Ragsdale shared her knowledge with us today!
