I visit schools with a passion to excite students to write creatively! During my time with them, I want students to explore their imagination and to know that their ideas have value. I want students to realize that ideas truly are everywhere, and that when we take the time to find them, anything is possible. Writing takes time and is hard work, but it’s worth it.
My presentation is packed with puppetry, music, and movement. The students don’t even realize they’re learning about the creative process.
Both before and after my programs, students and staff have access to videos, poems, and my free creativity book, Can You Think it? Can You Dream It?
