Events are carefully structured to provide a meaningful experience for each particular audience. My presentations may include slides, readings, group discussion, question-answer, and/or other activities.
All presentations include an emphasis on the strength of the human spirit, the importance of reading for pleasure, and the necessity of listening to the inner voice that urges each of us, Grow.
In addition to decades of teaching experience, I hold a B.A. in English, an M.S. in Reading Education, a K-12 Reading Specialist credential, and am the author of I Wont Read and You Cant Make Me: Reaching Reluctant Teen Readers. With special emphasis on how to match students with activities that inspire reading and writing, I offer classroom-proven techniques that involve books, art, writing, individual studies, creative group activities, graphic organizers and more.
