school visits

Engaging with third graders at Stone Lakes Elementary.

Are you a teacher or media specialist in an elementary school? I am currently scheduling virtual author visits for the 2021-22 school year.

Poetry is Fun (grades k-4)

This program teaches the elements of poetry and can be adapted according to the ages of the children. Students will learn symbolism, personification, simile, metaphor, rhyme etc. They will be encouraged to read along as I share some of my original poems. Estimated time: thirty to forty minutes.

Buddy the Beagle on Blueberry Street (grades 2-5)

The estimated time for this program is forty-five minutes and includes:

  • a reading from my newly published children’s book
  • how writers find inspiration
  • story elements
  • the publishing process
  • the benefits of reading

If you are interested in scheduling a virtual author visit please email me at the address below or message me through my facebook page.

I am a retired elementary teacher who was previously employed by Orange County Public Schools. Buddy the Beagle on Blueberry Street will make a perfect addition to your library. I am listed as an OCPS vendor.
