The students in grades four, five and six of Arrowhead and Nassakeag Elementary Schools received a special visit from Tim Green, a former defensive lineman for the Atlanta Falcons and a bestselling author.
    
Mr. Green has written a popular series of children’s books based on his own athletic and coaching experiences. He addressed students and discussed with them the importance of reading and education. “To be successful in entertainment, you need luck,” remarked the former defensive lineman. “But to be a successful teacher, doctor or lawyer, you need an education.”  
    
The entertaining author read two chapters from his most recent children’s novel Pinch Hit and took time to answers students’ questions. He also signed every copy of the 100 books he purchased for the District’s fifth-grade classes.
