I love to visit schools and meet new students!  My author visits offer a very personal touch.  I prefer to spend several days in each school so that I can really connect with the kids and staff.  In many schools, I visit each classroom individually so I can truly interact with the students.  My visits are also very low maintenance for the school staff.  Just give me a schedule and I'll take it from there.  All visits are customized to suit the age and curriculum, and I always allow time for plenty of questions.   My own kids are 10 and 12, so I understand how to make the discussion relevant and fun!

“Andra made reading and the writing process fun for our kids!”

“Andra was an absolute delight to have at our building.  She was so easy to work with and schedule in classes.  The students were thrilled to have a real-life author walking our hallways and listening to their stories and writing experiences too.  Any classroom and student could benefit from a visit from her."
