As the 2019 year comes to an end, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you that continue to support my books and work to empower children with insightful respect for our veterans, past and present! A special thanks to all the schools, organizations, and individuals that purchased books or brought me in to share my school assembly this year! Following are photos from some of the fall book tour school visits!

I brought a close to the 2018 book tour today at St. Joseph's and St. John's in Verona, PA! It was awesome to reconnect with former students that are now teaching there! I will be reflecting back on all of the schools that have graciously helped me educate our students about veterans over the past 2 months!

Today's school visit was to Cecil Intermediate School! I loved working with this 5th and 6th grade building since the majority of my elementary teaching career was spent teaching 5th and 6th grade! Also, always great to see former Slippery Rock students making good things happen in the local schools!

Photos from Weisenberg Elementary.. The audience included 80 veterans from the community. The veterans arrived for breakfast and then stood in the hallway to greet the students as they got off the buses and entered the school! It was impressive to see the look of surprise on the children's faces!

To the staff and troop leaders of the American Heritage Girls in Cranberry, It was so nice to meet your troop last night! I was super impressed that the girls already visit VA hospitals, when I mentioned that as a recommendation to write letters to the veterans there! You're doing some awesome things with your girls!

It is a wonderful feeling when you go do a school assembly and look out at the crowd of teachers and feel like you're almost back on your college campus! It was great to see, not one, but two of my former students teaching at Allard Elementary School today! Very proud of the teachers that you ladies have we come!

Thank you to all of the staff and students at Burchfield Elementary! I enjoyed, not only speaking with all of the students, but meeting so many veterans connected to the community and school staff! What an amazingly patriotic school and community you have! Having the entire student body sing three patriotic songs at the end of my presentation gave me goosebumps! Special thanks also to VFW post 709 for making the connection between us!

A few photos from a visit last week by a group from the Beaver County Rehabilitation Center. What an amazing group of students, and I love their patriotism too! They are integral in helping the Yellow Ribbon Girls package and send items overseas to deployed soldiers! http://www.yellowribbongirls.com

Photos from the Author's Among Us 2017 event at the American School Foundation in Mexico City on April 24, 2017! The students had some amazing questions for us, and it was so nice getting to know the other five authors present. Hopefully we have inspired some of the students to become future authors as well!

Beaver County Rehabilitation Center

Special thanks to the Beaver County Rehabilitation Center group that made a road trip to Slippery Rock University for my veterans and book presentation. This group is an amazing support group for veterans! For the last 10 years they have helped the "Yellow Ribbon Girls" help sort supplies, make treat bags, wrap gifts and shop for the troops.
