  • Please note:
    I thoroughly enjoy spending as much time interacting with the students and staff as possible. This includes such activities as eating lunch with them or greeting students as they arrive to school.
    I will be happy to sign books if you have a book sale/signing. I require adult assistance at the signing table and ample time planned in the schedule
