Being able to present in the library is great!

Had a great day at Desert Winds Elementary School! Our 2nd year of presenting to the entire school! New challenge since so many of the kids remembered us from last year! Glad we have new artifacts and information to share with them! We conducted 4 sessions overall and my voice is just about gone from all that talking! The students were amazing and really paid attention to all that we were doing! And had wonderful questions at the end of each presentation! That always keeps me on my toes! Looking forward to making this an annual event out in Picture Rocks!

    My first graders and I want to thank you for coming and doing another presentation. We really enjoyed it. Our favorite things were all the artifacts and shells that you brought and allowed us to hold, smell, and hear.
    We look forward to seeing you again.

    You outdid yourself! The 1st graders were in awe of your ocean facts and realia that you brought to our school. We also did non-fiction research reports. You appealed to all of the senses and the kids had a wonderful time!

    You were amazing…..again!!! My kinders really love all the cool stuff you bring for them to see and touch. It is very rare that a presenter can have 100 kids quiet and attentive. Thanks you!!!
