The Woods Academy

Where curiosity and confidence thrive.
Author Visit with Tom Longano
Mrs. Tanzi, 5th & 6th Grade Language Arts Teacher

5th and 6th Grade students from Mrs. Tanzi’s LA classes were treated to an Author Talk on January 8, by local writer and student, Tom Longano!



Before becoming an author, Tom Longano was a student and teacher at The Heights.

During the virtual visit, Woods Students were able to hear Mr. Longano’s words of wisdom as to what inspired him to be an author, and where he gets his inspiration today to write.

Tom’s Top Takeaways:

  1. Always be reading.
  2. Shoot free throws through your imagination.
  3. Practice writing as much as you can.
  4. Engage in many interesting experiences.

It was an honor and thrill for the 5th and 6th Grades to launch the New Year with such a fascinating author talk, and we look forward to reading The Blue Book and The Red Book of Stories from Tom Longano!
