"Thank you for your time and attention to our students. Your stories
and information were a wonderful addition to our multicultural studies...the
quality of your stories, research and information is excellent. It
is always exciting to have quality experiences for our students."
"Thank you for presenting
a session at the adult program of this year's 'Young Writers Conference'.
The response from the adult participants has been uniformly positive.
The session you conducted was a marvelous hit with the parents! Your
contributions to making the conference a success are greatly appreciated."
"We want to thank you
for your participation in our recently concluded institute, Ready
to Learn: Kids Need Libraries at
UNCG. The Storytelling Happening was a particular favorite among
our varied programs, and we all very much enjoyed your wonderful contributions
to that evening, including your moving reminiscence about your grandfather.
We look forward to future opportunities to enjoy your talents!"
