to your school (virtually or otherwise)!
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’ve always wanted to meet an author like you that writes funny books. I talked all about you to my mom. I want to be a writer. You’re a great example for us.” —Chloe

“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:

“Miranda Paul did a wonderful job connecting with our students from four years old up to twelve. Students were engaged and enthusiastic throughout the presentation. She quickly and easily adapted her talk to the students and venue. I would highly recommend Miranda Paul for anyone looking to bring in a children’s author.” —Holly Selle, Sturgeon Bay, WI

“Thank you for such an amazing experience! We all loved it! …You will always be welcome, even if it’s not a school visit!” —Victoria Calarco, Auburn, NY

“The presentation was fantastic. It was engaging and interactive—the kids loved it. Please keep coming back to Omaha!” —Elizabeth Ortega, Miller Park Elementary, NE

“Miranda’s presentations were full of energy. She got the students’ attention and made them laugh. The literary lessons were woven into the presentation in a way that was meaningful and fun. Absolutely loved the writing workshop! Students didn’t want to stop writing…you can tell Miranda was a teacher!” —Medford Area School District, WI

“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

“Wonderful experience for children & staff!” —Penny Pitman, Casey Park Elementary, NY
