New Friends at Carlisle


Today was the end of Friendship and Kindness week at Carlisle Elementary in Plano, TX and I made a bunch of new friends, those being the Carlisle Coyotes!

I got to see all of the Coyotes at once during one big show and even introduce them to all of the friends I feature in my presentation.

Thanks to Mrs. Jones and the Carlisle PTA for inviting me. Thanks to Coach Barbour for help setting up and for taking pictures. And the biggest thanks of all goes to the Carlisle Coyotes themselves. I hope you enjoyed my visit and remember to email your new friend any questions you think of later!

A Return to Reed!


Today marked a second return visit in my brief Houston area tour! And it was a great way to end the week at none other than Reed Elementary!

I had a great time seeing a whole new set of Roadrunners and visiting with friend and fellow Star Wars (and Elvis) fan, Mrs. McGarry! As always, I enjoyed her various Star Wars library decorations…

Thanks to Mrs. McGarry for inviting me back–great seeing you again! I had fun meeting Mrs. Bowman and spending lunch with her. And a big thanks to all the 1st and 3rd grade Roadrunners who I can already tell, are great readers and writers themselves!

2 Schools on Day 3


Today I had the pleasure of visiting two more Katy ISD schools, the first one being Bryant Elementary in the morning!

It was super hero day at Bryant which fit right in with the reveal of my upcoming Wonder Woman book!

It was also Virgil’s birthday so he donned his tuxedo and posed for some shots!

For the afternoon, I enjoyed performing two shows for the students at nearby Stephens Elementary!

Thanks to Mrs. Casillas and Mrs. Bryant for having me out. Thanks to Mrs. Frank for sending your class’s comments about my show. And a big thanks to all the great kids at Bryant and Stephens Elementarys! I hope you enjoyed my presentations and remember those four words!

Return to WoodCreek


Today I returned to the Houston area, AND I returned to one of my favorite stops in Katy, TX–WoodCreek Elementary–home of the Forest Rangers!

It was great being back in the forest-themed school, especially since I’m finishing up a book that takes place in a summer camp–great timing!

I got to hang out in the library all morning with the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders, where I met tons of young writers and future screenwriters!

Thanks to Mrs. Baker for inviting me back and for setting up some other Katy schools this week. And a big thanks to all the Forest Rangers I met today. Be sure to check out some of the books I signed for your library!

Swimming in Deepwater


Today I spent the day (and evening) at Deepwater Elementary in Pasadena, TX! I first performed three shows for their enthusiastic 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders and met many young readers and writers as I signed books for both the students AND the school library!

That evening, I was honored to perform at Deepwater’s literacy night where the theme was books that were turned into movies. I signed some more books, posed for more photos, and had a fun time all around.


I enjoyed meeting many parents and gave them a special treat when I had the kids help me perform my song at the end of my presentation. The phones were really out and recording then!

Thanks to Mrs. Tabuena for inviting me and for all the hard work. Thanks to Mrs. Staley for the wonderful tech support. Thanks to Mrs. Cabaniss for the generous gift basket. And the biggest thanks of all goes to the great students of Deepwater Elementary! I hope you enjoyed literacy night and I hope you enjoy reading my books!

Brock Rocks!


I enjoyed a return visit to Brock Elementary in Burleson, TX! It was exciting to see the Tigers again and meet many new ones!

Just like my last visit, many of the students and teachers were dressed as his or her favorite literary character! That’s always fun to see! I’m the one in the middle…I came as the author.

I also got to floss dance with all of the 3rd graders for a special scavenger hunt. That was a first!

Thanks to Mrs. Bookwalter for inviting me back and for the great lunch. Thanks to Mrs. Severns for all the help. And thanks to all the talented Brock Tigers! It was fun revisiting your wonderful school!

Two Schools in Pasadena!


 

 
After a brief hiatus, I hit the road again, traveling all the way down to Pasadena, TX. And my first day back had me at two schools in one day! In the morning, I swung by Gardens Elementary–home of the Gators! I had two big shows in front of two enthusiastic groups of Gators!
 

 
After lunch, I headed over to meet more great kids at South Shaver Elementary!
 

 
There, I performed two shows in their library with the 2nd and 3rd graders seated in their cool mini amphitheater. Just as in the morning, both grades of South Shaver students were wonderful crowds!
 

 
Thanks to Mrs. Betancourt and Mrs. Aguilar for inviting me out. And a big thanks to all the great kids at Gardens and South Shaver! You made my first day back fun and a breeze!

Hug Your School Nurse!


 

 
Last week, I got to meet the wonderful students at Santos Livas Elementary in Alamo, TX! I performed two shows and let me just say, you Santos Livas students were two of the best audiences I’ve had in a while!
 

 
I signed a bunch of books and even received a wonderful gift basket at the end of my last show! Thanks so much and I hope you enjoy your books!
 

 
Unfortunately, I didn’t feel well during my final show, and what do you do when you don’t feel well at school? You go to the nurse’s office! Well, that’s what I did and guess what, kids? Your nurse, Ms. Ramos, saved my life. She really did! So, the next time you see her, go up and give her a great big hug for me!
 

 
Thanks to all the fun Santos Livas Students for being such a great audience. Thanks to Mrs. Rios for her help and the generous gift basket. Thanks to all of the PSJA ISD staff who asked about me and shared their concerns. Thanks to Mrs. Galvan for inviting me and for going above and beyond, staying by my side in the hospital until my family arrived. And the biggest thanks of all goes to Jessica Ramos for giving me the opportunity to visit more schools in the future, and hopefully someday soon, return to Santos Livas! You are the best nurse a school could have!
