book signings by Kevin Carroll*


*Autographed copies of Kevin Carroll's books "Rules of the Red Rubber Ball" as well as "What's Your Red Rubber Ball?" will be available for purchase in the gym immediately after district fall in-service.  Cost:  "Rules of the Red Rubber Ball" - $12, "What’s Your Red Rubber Ball?" - $16; cash or check only please.

  • "Rules of the Red Rubber Ball" is Carroll's critically acclaimed book about finding one's passion in the world, and continuing with perseverance and determination.  Critics are calling this work "rejuvenating" and "inspiring". 
  • "What's Your Red Rubber Ball" is a template to following the advice of the first "rubber ball" book, complete with hands-on activities to encourage the reader to reach for his/her dreams and achieve goals. This book was developed at the request of teachers around the nation for Kevin to transform his first book into a hands-on curriculum for finding your passion in life and achieving your dreams.

Snacks provided.  Part-time faculty will receive half-day stipend.
