Product Description

There are a few GLINKS in every school–including yours. Would you recognize him? I Once Knew a GLINK by author Maria Angeliadis tells about one GLINK who is not too keen on the word “THINK” and tries everything he can to avoid it. Then one day . . . the light bulb comes on!

FROM THE BACK COVER: I once knew a GLINK . . . who just wouldn’t think! Oh, that foolish GLINK!

He chose to hide his abilities and strengths behind big, blue, blinking eyes. Not such a good idea when you are a student in school, because learning to read and write is really the thing to do.

Oh, what a dilemma our friend the GLINK is in. If he decides to not think, what will his future be?

Imagine what would happen if you grew tired of reading and writing and math, and YOU decide you’ve had enough. Would you just turn off your power to THINK?

What decision will the GLINK make? Follow his adventure as he tries to decide, “Do I stop thinking and just use my ability to BLINK? Or should I learn to read and decide I want to use my power to THINK!”

Turn the pages and follow what happens to our friend the GLINK. This can be a decision for me and for you. Using our power to think will be just the right thing to do!

Maria Angeliadis, EdDLove of God, love of family, love of learning, love of teaching, and love of writing! These are the values that drive the life of Maria Angeliadis. For her, the values fill her thirst for knowledge and desire to help. She has had the blessing of being able to work with children in her chosen career, as well as in the Church.

Mentoring and working with children and adults in these areas have helped her to reach out and guide others. Maria will go to any length to bring learning to all, including cheering the talent in her students and helping them recognize their own worth. Watching students’ enthusiasm about their learning is exciting for Maria. This is everything she hopes to foster in all her students. Just as the character Mia in this story becomes stronger in all she does by recognizing her own self-worth and God-given gifts, Maria strives to bring that same feeling to all those she is privileged to teach and mentor.

Maria’s greatest joys are her husband Gregory, their children and children by marriage—George, Stacey, Aspacia. and Erik—and their beloved grandchildren Amelia, Gregory, Miccah, and Rylee Basilia. Maria’s passion for education and fostering self-esteem led her to complete her Doctorate in Special Ed Leadership and Supervision. . . and she hasn’t stopped since!
