I am always delighted to share BAT COUNT and present to students about bats, citizen science, writing about social & environmental issues, and being an author. I lead writing workshops as well.

A former elementary teacher with a Masters in Early Childhood Education from Bank Street College, I love working hands-on with kids. I am always game to tailor presentations to issues or themes a class is studying, and I prefer working with one or a few classes at a time – rather than larger groups -- so there are more opportunities for children to participate and engage.

My visits are appropriate for grades K-4. Each typically runs from 30 to 45 minutes, and I can offer up to three in a single day. I’m glad to sign books, too, if time allows.

As for fee: budgets vary wildly and I can be flexible. Please reach out through my CONTACT page, above, to give me a sense of what you’re looking for, and we’ll talk about setting something up!
