SCHOOL VISITS: 4 - 12
My reading and writing workshops for all ages range from MUSE ON THE RUN and THE IDEA FACTORY to WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A MUSTANG, true science, history and current events based on Wild at Heart: Mustangs and the Young People Fighting to Save Them. Wondering if I'll fit in with your crowd? I've taught high school in downtown Los Angeles, spoken in rodeo arenas, school gyms and hotel ballrooms. I'll be happy to talk with you and brainstorm schemes for whatever you want to accomplish!

TERRI GIVES BACK AT MOUNTAIN VIEW MONTESSORI
The students of Mountain View combined Poetry Month and Earth Day by creating a Poet-Tree. Terri Farley brought the image of a bare winter tree and students brought Springtime by covering it with unique and vivid leaves!
Just as leaves convert the sun's energy into chemical energy to nourishes a real tree, students decorated leaves with unique poetry, experiences and imagination, then posted them on the bare tree to fuel the school's creativity.
The Poet-Tree remains in the Mountain View Montessori library so that students can continue to help it grow! The kids chose the Marine Mammal Center for the Authors for Earth Day donation.
