“Susan’s classroom presentation of Mama Earth was an absolute delight for my
1st graders. My students were thoroughly engaged as Susan, dressed as Mama Earth,
encouraged active participation throughout the reading. Susan’s presentation
aligned perfectly with our writing program as my young “authors” got to meet
a real author, see and hear the author's work, discuss the writing process,
and learn first-hand what an author can accomplish. Well done!”
“Susan’s presentation was outstanding! Across our building, our K-2 students are studying shapes and attributes, and her book tied in perfectly! Susan’s engaging presentation was a hit for students and teachers alike!”

filled with interesting anecdotes. I picked up useful and detailed tips.
I’d sit through this again tomorrow just to pick up more!”

Strategies for School Success:
Here is a video of my book launch at Book Passage. I am dressed as Mama Earth and use props, puppets and multimedia to engaged various learning modalities.
Gather up to 250 K-2 or 3-5 students for an assembly. It will be lively and interactive, incorporating the writing process. I use multimedia and activate students’ various learning modalities. Twenty years of teaching really shines through when I am up in front of an audience of children.
I can facilitate a workshop series in which students create their own stories. I bring blank, hardbound books, giving students an opportunity to publish their own stories.
I am available to speak about multicultural literature, Best Practices for Facebook, the transition to the Common Core and/or Social Media. Endorsements from prior conference evaluations are above.
I can lead your next site or district-level PD with workshops about differentiation, Common Core strategies, or best practices for literacy instruction. I have designed and facilitated quality district PD for the past ten years.
Topics include, but are not limited to: From Draft to Deal, How to Stand Out and Sell and Writing for the Common Core. Above are some endorsements of my presentations from the Big Sur Writers’ Conference and the San Diego State Writer’s Conference.
