Author Desiree Fleming Visits WDLA

 

Last week, local author Desiree Fleming visited Washington Dual Language Academy.  Second and third grade students had the privilege of listening to a reading from her book, Willow.  During the interactive presentation, students had an opportunity to meet Willow the Puppet and learn from the author herself.  As a graduate of District 89 and Proviso East High School, Desiree Fleming is an inspiration to our students and is a real-life example of how hard work and perseverance can make dreams come true!
