SCHOOL VISITS: K - 5
I've always loved going to school. I'm still excited to get a new notebook filled with blank pages -- and possibilities. And the smell of a freshly-opened box of crayons never fails to make me happy.
Luckily for me, I'm a children's author, so I get to visit schools all the time! I'm also a former elementary school counselor, so I'm comfortable working with kids. I know that school days are busy days, so I make sure that the time students and teachers are with me is time well-spent.
I'm available to speak at schools, libraries, children's literary festivals, and educator conferences. I also love to Skype!

JEANIE CONNECTS WITH STUDENTS AT OLD BONHOMME
I had a fantastic day with the enthusiastic K-6 students at Salt Brook Elementary School in New Providence, New Jersey. They were all eager to show their support for the different conservation organizations. With the help of librarian Michelle Demich, they'd thoroughly researched their choices—these kids really knew their facts! Principal Jeannie Drexinger (pictured) was as excited as I was that the winner was THE RAINFOREST ALLIANCE.
