ALL THREE FORMS MUST BE DOWNLOADED AND COMPLETED TO BOOK A VISIT

​​​​​​A visit by a real author is an EXCELLENT way to connect students with literacy.  An author who delivers hands on science labs with REAL specimens, experiments, and artifacts will show kids (and adults) how to explore the world in ways that keep them motivated and engaged!  I love delivering labs to schools near and far, and I WANT TO BRING YOU THE SCIENCE! I have delivered exciting hands on labs to over 100 schools and camps, and to thousands of excited investigators.  

As a long-time teacher, I know how important it is to target specific standards, so I form my presentations around the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) and the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).  If you (or your state) has specific standards that you’d like to emphasize during my visit, just let me know!

To book your experience your first step will be to download my prep packet which you will find below.  It will walk you step by step through the process of planning a wonderful literacy and science event that your students will remember!

FREE AUTHOR’S VISITS?!
Want to attract the elusive author to your campus without a presentation fee?  Help students buy books!
If your campus buys 150 books at booking, the speaker fee is waived for a local visit.  A non-local campus that buys 200 books would have the speaker fee waived, and would only need to cover travel expenses!
 




SKYPE VISIT

10 minute Q&A format.  

The class should be prepared ahead and should have read books in advance.




STORY TIME / BOOK SIGNING

Set up a local book store visit when I am already scheduled to be in the area.







 



The above local rates can be split in half (bisected for you scientists) to make a half day!  The special half day rate provides 2 large format or 3 classroom programs within a 4 hour window.

Schools can share the day!  If two schools are within 20 minutes of each other, the presentations and fees can be split!  The schedule will need to allow for a 90 minute transition time to accommodate packing/unpacking the

piles of science that I’m bringing!  

Need one more presentation to make the schedule work?  Want your after school club, staff meeting, professional development, or
Family Night to also enjoy the visit?  Add a 5th presentation for $250!

***These standard rates are based on standard schedules and presentations.  If you’re working with a specific budget already,
please BE BOLD about contacting me for a custom program!
