    School Visits

    As a former teacher, I really miss being in the classroom. I began teaching in 1994 and have continued to work with children since that time. I've run workshops with kids from toddlers to graduating seniors, in locations from public libraries to rural American schools to a high school in Indonesia. I love to share my experiences and passion for writing and geography with students.

    I offer a number of presentations and workshops for learners of varied ages. I am happy to run teacher workshops as well. I tailor each of my programs to meet the needs of the audience, taking into account the size of the group, ages of the participants, etc. However, no matter which workshop topic you choose, I plan to do certain things in every session:


    I tailor my presentations to the age level and size of a group, as well as whether they are in person or in virtual format.

    For the youngest students (PreK-K), my presentations are typically 25-30 minutes. For Grades 1-2, they are usually 30-40 minutes. If teachers would like to do Q&A, I would ask for the questions to be submitted ahead of time. I do not do spontaneous Q&A with this age group but am quite happy to answer questions which the teachers have worked on in advance with the kids.

    For older kids (Grades 3 and up), my presentations are typically 45-60 minutes which includes time for Q&A.
