School Visits

I love doing school visits and can offer several formats! For schools in Shoreline, Edmonds, and North Seattle, I can offer in-person visits. For all other schools, I can offer virtual visits over Zoom.

For assemblies and larger gatherings, I can offer a 45 minute slide presentation on the importance of representation in children’s books (with an emphasis on Asian American representation), followed by a 15 minute Q&A.

My presentation draws upon my experience as an author of YA and MG books with Asian American protagonists, my mentorship with the We Need Diverse Books organization, and my equity-minded teaching of Children’s Literature, Creative Writing, English, and Intercultural Communication. I have over twenty years of experience as an anti-oppressive educator committed to social justice and culturally responsive teaching.

For individual classroom visits, I can offer the slide presentation and a Q&A, or I can offer short creative writing lessons and writing exercises. I can also mix and match!

Fees are available upon request. If interested, please reach out through the contact form.
