Hopkins, Jeanette L.

Comments from the author about writing: I am a children's author and enjoy writing books that combine rhythm, rhyme and repetition in the text. I taught for over 20 years in the elementary, middle school and college settings and received the ICTE Literacy award in the 1990's. I am a past member of the Iowa Writing Project's advisory board and believe in a natural approach to reading and writing. My husband and I have traveled throughout the Midwest and east coast, and have presented in over 200 schools working with children and adults of all ages. My books have been reviewed by the Iowa Reading Association, The National Writing Project and the Midwest Review. My presentations include a "hands on, minds on" approach where the children are actively engaged in the literacy process.

My husband and I generally work together and provide a participant engaged presentation. $200.00 for the classroom presentations which would include 6 individual classroom sessions, at about 30 minutes per session...running from 9:00 am-1:00 pm. We will schedule more than one day if needed for buildings. We provide all materials for the presentations.
