Educators Enjoy Barnes & Noble Boundless Book-a-thon

Barnes & Noble at Coronado treated teachers at the Educator Reception held on January 15. The week of January 12-10 was designated as Educator Week and provided savings and discounts on a variety of purchases.

Jessica Quintana, Freshman English teacher at Rio Grande HS, enjoys visiting with authors Bonnie Rucobo, (King Pachuco and Princess Mirasol) and Stephan McRanie (Mal and Chad series) at the Boundless Book-a-thon last week at Barnes & Noble.

The highlight of the week was the Boundless Book-a-thon event.  Local authors and their books were showcased at the event.   Hispanic, Native American and New Mexican cultures were represented by the books, which were available for purchase at the authors’ table.  Tea, treats, raffles and a 25% discount off books and games added to the festive nature of the reception. 

The Nook HD and HD+ were showcased with a new app. called Nearpod which allows teachers  to create lesson plans, show them on NOOK devices, control the presentation via the teacher app/NOOK and receive results from quizzes.
