Classroom Wish List for Jodi Marie Fisher

Jodi Marie Fisher is a music teacher and local creative entrepreneur, author, and mom. She’s going to teach music at both of Moscow’s charter schools this coming school year including Palouse Prairie Charter School and Moscow Charter School (where she will also teach theater). She loves using picture books in her classes to teach music as well as topics and concepts for life skills, empathy, understanding, cultural awareness, and to bring color and fun to her classes. She plans on using at least one picture book per class & would like to reach out to our community & beyond to help her build her music & theater class library. This next year (2022-2023) is her first full year teaching at both schools. Also, she loves that you could build her classroom library while also supporting us as your local bookstore. Thank you for considering purchasing one of these books so that you can continue to bring color, fun, reading, and wonderful learning to kids on the Palouse.

You can order the book and deliver it to Miss Jodi personally, or you can put a note in your order when you check out that you'd like BookPeople of Moscow to deliver the book to Miss Jodi's classroom for you. Thank you!
