Bring Laura To You!

School Visit Information

I have over six years of teaching in the trenches of middle school under my belt, and one of my favorite things to do is to talk to kids. I offer a variety of presentations for groups of all sizes that fit with multiple literacy standards.

 Contact me at for a list of presentation options as well as additional school visit information!

“Laura talked to close to 500 students and yet she kept their attention the entire time. Her presentation was so engaging that the students could not stop talking about it days after. Her enthusiasm captured all of the students and made them want to read her book, The Edge of Extinction. My students have been asking every day since when we will get to start to read the story. Her lesson really stuck with my kids and students remembered what she had said while they were writing days later. I would definitely ask Laura to come back and give another presentation to my students next year.”

“Laura’s presentation really inspired our students.  They’ve formed their own informal book clubs and are loving The Ark Plan.  Laura motivated them not only to read but to write.  Her easy to use tips and tricks for narrative writing were put into practice in the classroom the very next day.  We can’t wait for book two!”My students and I really enjoyed Laura’s author visit.  It was fun to hear about the author process as well as about her book!
