School & Library Visits

I’m now booking school visits for 2017-18. Download this year’s flyer:  2017-18 school visits
I’ve received so many nice compliments about your programs and especially the writing workshops. The teachers loved the way you had things set-up for the mini-lesson and said the kids really did a great job with it. They were also so excited about the zoo program and we’re very grateful that was a part of the program that you and Jen offered!~Liz, Lincolnville Elementary, Van Wert, Ohio
Every teacher I saw expressed how wonderful the presentations were. We were all so impressed by how you captured the attention of all of our students even in the whole school assemblies. Your presentations are so well thought out and executed. ~Rhonda, Darby Woods Elementary
Loved the cross-curricular of  science and reading. You met stale standards (compare and contrast) while fully engaging everyone! ~ Fairbanks Elementary

Our programs support Ohio curriculum standards, CCSS, and the New Generation Science Standards, while exciting students about reading, writing, publishing and science. I emphasize hard work, persistence, embracing constructive criticism, and recognizing each student’s unique gifts. My programs challenge students to be readers, writers, and thinkers!
