Here's what I can offer your school and students!
(Free visits are only for Utah and surrounding areas. Visits to other areas must pay for my travel expense, though neighboring schools and/or school districts can split that cost and I can visit multiple schools in an area to save on your budget.)
I never charge schools for assemblies. An author came to my school when I was a child and it changed me. I hope to offer the same experience for other kids.
FREE GIFT FOR EVERY STUDENT
Every student receives one piece of artwork from my middle-grade series I Am Sleepless. I want every student to receive something, regardless of their financial circumstance and if their family can afford to buy a book.
A 20-45 MINUTE ASSEMBLY (Creativity & Anti-Bullying)
I provide a fun, entertaining, 20-45 minute assembly for 3rd graders and up (depending on the time the school allocates). I tell funny, interactive stories from my childhood and apply them to the power of creativity, reading, and anti-bullying.
I'll provide posters 2 weeks in advance to be placed around the school to promote the event.
Each student receives a printed packet to take home 2 weeks ahead of the assembly. It includes 1 free piece of art for the child and information for parents to order signed copies of my books from my website. Ordered books will be delivered to the school the day of the event.
YOU DON'T HANDLE ANY MONEY
Schools DO NOT have to handle any money for the orders. I want to make life easy on the school and the Media Specialists. All orders will be placed online. I only ask for help promoting the event, distributing the flyers for children to take home, and distributing the ordered books to the children.
ALL ORDERS GET A FREE GIFT
Students receive a 15pc art pack with any purchase. These will be included with the books when delivered.
MANY TYPES OF CREATIVITY
My goal is to encourage all students to read, and talk about the many ways we can be creative and curious learners. (Music, sports, art, writing, math, magic, etc...)
Below is a contact form to reach me, along with printable flyers for your school. Feel free to check out the reviews for my books on Amazon.com and explore my website. I typcially do school visits on Fridays beut can make exceptions with advance notice. Let me know a date and time that works to schedule an assembly for your school. I look forward to hearing from you!
