School Visits Pre-K – 5

I would be delighted to visit your school, library, or after-school program.

A typical visit may include a presentation and a complementary activity, but I will gladly adjust my lesson plan to the needs of my audience. I can present specific crafts and lessons to cater to your school’s preferences and provide the lesson-plans for teachers upon request.
