Guest Speaker Topic:

We Teach Geography… and a Whole Lot More

Bringing Trucker Gater AliveAuthor of the “Grandpa and the Truck” books for children, Colleen Kelly Mellor and her trucker partner, Paul Wesley Gates (“Gater” in the trucking trade), engage child audiences with their tales of a long-haul trucker who travels all over the United States, transporting households.

Their largest audience was 150 little ones (k-grade 6) who alternately swayed to the music “The Nitro Express,” or actively participated, demonstrating geography skills learned in the program.
