VISITS IN PERSON

My school presentations are a fun way to get children excited about reading and writing! My visits are interactive, inspiring and educational.

  • My main goal is to inspire children to write and create. Also, I'd like to foster the love for reading as a healthy habit.

  • Your students will benefit from meeting a real-life author who loves reading as much as creating her own books.

  • Each presentation is geared toward the specific age group... from kindergarten to high school! I have several "lessons" depending on the book we choose to focus. Students must read one or more of my books before visit. Book orders will be available.

  • I have experience visiting schools. Not only I have visited over 150 schools through Skype, but I've also visited several schools in Oklahoma and out-of-state. My 8 year experience as a preschool teacher has given me the necessary tools to keep children engaged, focused, and motivated.

  • With older classes, I'll share writing examples, some of my own rewrites and edits, and anyone said rejection letters? Yup! That's all part of being a writer!...

  • I'd love to speak in Spanish with your ESL or ELL students! As an English as a Second language speaker myself, I'll be glad to encourage them to keep on pushing through the challenges of language learning. 

  • Children of all backgrounds benefit from meeting a writer who is immigrant, and bilingual. Let's break stereotypes together! Representation matters!
