SCHOOL VISITS: K - 5
As a teacher, working with kids is what I love most! My multimedia presentations are designed to share the excitement and fun of writing! I share my journey as an author and give a behind-the-scenes look at how an idea becomes a published book - including a pile of rejection letters, which the kids always love! I stress the importance of revision and how to give and take constructive comments. We do an interactive reading and writing activities.

I visited two schools in Waupun, Wisconsin for this year's A4ED. The students at Meadow View Elementary School and Rock River Intermediate School researched five organizations and both schools had the same winner—
The Humane Society of the United States!
Apparently, Waupun, Wisconsin is overrun with animal lovers! I did five presentations, so I enjoyed announcing the winner five times and watching the students break into applause and cheers!







2014 at GEORGE W. LIEB SCHOOL in Bridgeview, Illinois USA


LORI EMPOWERS YOUNG READERS AT GEORGE W. LIEB

The students voted for the Wildlife Conservation Society and I will be donating to them.
