Third Grade Author Connection, Denise Brennan-Nelson, “Leopold the Lion”

On January 25, 2017, Pleasanton Third Grades connected to Denise Brennan-Nelson, author of “Leopold the Lion” and nineteen other books. Ms. Nelson inspired the third grade class to develop strong reading skills for the future. She also inspired them to be creative writers, using their imaginations to tell a story. This interactive distance learning connection allowed students to ask questions directly to Ms. Nelson. In addition to Pleasanton students, schools from Michigan and Wisconsin were also included in the connection. This even was scheduled through the CAPSpace Clearninghouse distance learning office in Michigan.

    Good Morning,

    My name is Samantha and I work with, a web resource that provides information related to addiction, substance abuse, and mental health.

    The job market for careers in mental health and addiction medicine is growing because of an increased demand for substance abuse treatment. Most jobs in the behavioral health care field require some type of higher education, and higher-level jobs often require experience in the field.

    We have created a guide that outlines the different career paths one could follow in the behavioral health field, as well as the types of degrees and what one would learn.

    I believe that this guide would be a valuable resource to share on your page,, under the “Career Resources” section.

    Please feel free to review our guide:

    I would love your feedback on our information. Thanks and have a great day!
