I love doing school visits and can offer several formats! For the present, all visits will be virtual.
For assemblies and larger gatherings, I can offer a 40 minute slide presentation on the importance of representation in children’s books (with an emphasis on Asian American representation), followed by a 20 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!
