As an educator who has worked on educational television shows like WordGirl, CyberChase, and Martha Speaks, and has helped design museum exhibits for kids, there is nothing I enjoy more than talking with students, teachers and visitors. If you are interested in having me visit your school, library, or special event, please fill out the contact form below. 

I am happy to provide more information about the content of the programs and pricing, and we can discuss how I can best tailor my visit to fit the needs of your event.
