As a former educator and now a full-time author, I am delighted to come to schools, libraries, and community centers and events for readings, presentations, crafts, and workshops.

The following proposals will benefit you, your students, and enhance your curriculum. And, we can always discuss and plan specific topics on which to focus. Just let me know!

"The length of the presentation was on point [...] You did an excellent job keeping the students focused [...]they were definitely engaged [...] Moreover they were excited to learn that you were not only an author, but a former teacher who at one time taught first grade. 

Thank you for your very enjoyable presentation."
