I love visiting schools and talking to students about the writing process and books.
Before I became a writer, I was an outdoor educator, a classroom teacher, and the Associate Curator of Education for a zoo. I offer presentations that are fun and age appropriate. See below for more details.
Debbi Michiko Florence was engaging and informative! The second and third graders of Belle Sherman Elementary (a culturally and economically diverse school in Ithaca, NY) loved hearing answers to their questions about her books and writing process.

Now booking for Spring 2018!
50-minute interactive presentation appropriate for 1st – 4th grade students.
I talk about the inspiration for Jasmine Toguchi, Japanese culture (relating to the books), and the writing process. The presentations invite students to participate in discussions and activities. I provide materials for activities for students to take home or use in the classroom.
I also offer Zoom/Skype visits.
