Partners Needed for Author Visit Program for Schools
Each year, I connect with small business owners and civic groups who have an interest in helping our local schools. My Author Visit Program was created at the request of area teachers, who have not seen a rebound in school budgets but very much want my author visits, writing workshops, history assemblies, and classroom sets of free books.
If championing literacy, writing, World War II education, and the arts is of interest to you, please contact me and I'll send you a partner packet. We have great new incentives for our partners that will bring you even more exposure in our community! Let us know if you have a preferred school (maybe the school your children or grandchildren attend). Please be a hero for our kids!
Here's what one teacher said: Thank you again for your wonderful presentation to our students. I've already had 5 students in my homeroom complete the follow-up assignment and earn a book! Also, they were so excited today as we wrote a class thank you note to our sponsors.

Home-Front Heroes School Kit Program
If you would like to support reading, literacy, and history education in our schools, please consider becoming a sponsor of Teresa's popular Home-Front Heroes School Kit program. This program provides classroom or reading group sets of Teresa's books, along with teaching materials and a gift for the students, to teachers on our nationwide waiting list. We have placed more than 80 kits in schools in eleven states, but still have dozens of teachers on our list.
If you choose, your donation can be made in honor of a man or woman from the World War II generation. We will create a flyer for the students to read about your honoree, and he or she will be featured on our WWII Honorees wall.
To request a brochure or learn more, contact us at email@example.com
"I was so pleased to receive an entire class set of The No-No Boys as I have been teaching it for a few years, and it has become an integral part of my integrated SS/LA curriculum.
Not only do the kids love this novel, but it also inspires them to research further the unbelievable events that occurred during this period of history. Even more important than the academic benefits, is the way it encourages students to adopt a new, more compassionate world view."
--Lisa Ransom, elementary school teacher
"I am honored to be the recipient of such a generous gift! We read a lot of historical fiction in my classroom, and kids are always asking for more. I see myself using these materials in a variety of different ways."
--Carolyn Gillis, elementary school teacher
The Great Book Giveaway
Every year, Teresa provides hundreds of copies of her books to organizations that work with at-risk, low-income and Hispanic children and seniors. She visits their holiday parties to meet the families and sign their books. It's her favorite activity of the year! To view pictures of many of our giveaways, visit the photo gallery!
If you'd like to help sponsor one of our organizations this holiday season, please contact Teresa at firstname.lastname@example.org
