What Others Are Saying...

Comments from school visits

Parents and students were very positive about the entire evening, and I received numerous comments about how much they learned and how much they enjoyed themselves. 
Susan Haske,

You are very inspiring for my own work as well as for what I will teach my students. Thank you so much for your enlightening words. 
Caroline Klein,
Fourth Grade Teacher - William S. Covert School

Your presentation was lively, informative, entertaining, and on target with young peoples interests and imaginations. Students were mesmerized by your stories of personal experiences on location to research your books. One can only be delightfully pleased by your presentations that inspire the young to read and write.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your language is both beautiful and powerful. Once again, you were wonderful! My group reacted with accolades to your presentation...None of this comes as a surprise to me, however, as your visit is often a highlight of our class.

Brian gave unselfishly of his knowledge...enthusiastic...dynamic. A rare find in an instructor. Totally held my interest and zipped it up! I wish this course would never end. I learned so-o-o much!

Mr. Heinz has so much to share that two weeks is too short. He is passionate about his work...A great teacher and encouraging mentor. He used every possible media! I will be going home with a treasure chest of ideas, methods, etc. to share.
