The 2018-2019 author visit packet is now available!
DOWNLOAD NOWI promise we’ll have fun if you invite me to your school! But you don’t have to take my word for it. Here’s what kids have said:
“Excellent, awesome, amazing, terrific, and stupendous are things that describe you and the powerpoint you shared.” —Ryan
“It was very fascinating to see a variety of different styles of writing, not just one book. The tips you gave us about writing were extremely helpful.” —Amanda
“I was so excited to tell my mom that I was going to meet a REAL famous person.” —Blake
“I thank you for helping my friend and I out by telling us about how most authors get rejected. We are now a lot more determined. . .” —Emma
“I wish you can stay for a longer time!” —Jake
Teachers seem to like my presentations, too. Here’s what a few of them have said:
“How wonderful it was that in addition to making my students laugh, teaching them about fiction and nonfiction, and rousing their excitement about reading, you were an example to ALL of my students of what a girl can grow up and be as an adult…Thank you.” —Emily Beasley, Franklin Elementary, NE
”My students were completely enthralled with Miranda Paul’s presentation. She held them spellbound with her enthusiasm and sharing of the variety of writing outlets that are available to them as writers. I heard multiple comments from students who were anxious to start on their own writing careers, and it wasn’t uncommon to have several students say, ‘I can’t wait to start writing!’ She was fun to listen to and obviously loves what she does.” —Joan Gilbert, Valley View Elementary School, WI
“You have a talent for engaging people’s attention and interest…They have a much broader understanding and respect for a place they’ve never been and people they’ve never met, thanks to your stories and inspiring words.” —Debbie Gilligan, Chesapeake Public Charter School, MD
