Mandela Welcomes Illustrator and Writer Bryan Collier

Scholars at Nelson Mandela Elementary enjoyed a visit from Bryan Collier, a well-known children’s book illustrator and writer, on April 15, 2021. Collier was originally scheduled to visit for the previous school year, but COVID-19 brought about a change of plans. Despite the delay, this year’s scholars in grades 3-5 were able to be inspired by Collier and his work. Gathered safely in the gym, one grade at a time, they were delighted to listen to Collier.
At Mandela, all team members believe in the importance of providing role models for the scholars. Collier was exactly that because in addition to sharing his illustrations, he also offered advice and stories the scholars could relate to. He said, “never forget, your lives matter,” as he shared his illustrations in the book All Because You Matter by Tami Charles.
At Mandela, we always strive to provide quality instruction that demonstrates ALL scholars can learn and develop academically, emotionally, socially, and physically so that they can thrive in whatever they choose to do. Bryan Collier was a great example of the success our scholars can havesomeday.
