School Visits

As a long-time teacher (elementary, secondary, college, and adult ed) and an educational workshop presenter, not to mention a natural ham, I am very comfortable doing school visits. So far, I've gotten rave reviews!

However, my current focus is on doing a limited number of local school visits (Salt Lake City area). Still, it doesn't hurt to ask. E-mail for information regarding fees and scheduling.

In addition, I give writing workshops for teachers—see Kate's Tree of Words website. Groups I've addressed have varied in size from small workshops of 10-15 teachers to lecture hall-type groups of 130 attendees.
