I would LOVE to visit your school, library, or business virtually! I'm able to teach small-group settings or present in front of a large group; the latter may be recorded. My experience as a teacher and author lends itself to all sorts of lessons or presentations. I'm also able to adapt my presentations to different ages. Until we meet again in person!
My virtual rates:
$200 for a 45- to 60-minute presentation (can include a writing activity)
$200 for a 45- to 60-minute presentation to multiple grades (i.e. K-2, 3-5)
$150 for a 45- to 60-minute read-aloud with Q & A
*Multiple sessions will be offered a discount (up to four sessions a day)
