I love to speak with students about two of my favorite subjects: science and writing. Your students will learn how an author researches and writes nonfiction books. They will discover that they are all nonfiction writers, and that nonfiction rocks! My presentations reinforce and support your STEM and ELA curricula. While writing over 90 books and hundreds of poems, articles, and stories for magazines and educational publishers, I’ve researched a myriad of science topics. I’m happy to tailor a program to your classroom needs. Or you can choose one of the following programs:

Here’s what teachers and librarians say about my presentation:
You hooked our students right away and they learned so much as they listened.
Everyone was so pleased with the manner in which you were able to engage the students in your presentation yesterday. All the teachers commented on your ability to reinforce the writing process and keep the children involved.
I was especially pleased to have the kids meet a non-fiction author as they are often asked to write nonfiction pieces in class.
Each presentation was tailored for age appropriateness, including movement for the youngest and humor for the oldest. Her experience managing groups of students was apparent. While the presentations were fun, they were also educational. I would recommend Buffy Silverman for any classroom author presentation for elementary students.
Your program was very engaging–teachers told me their kids were talking about it the rest of the day.
