School Presentation Testimonials
What the Teachers are saying
"Thanks so much for coming out to Brighton. The teachers and I thought you were great and reasonably priced! I know the students loved you! I even had some parents at Parent - Teacher Conferences bring up your name and say how their child was writing away at home because an author came to school!! I even saw one of my first graders drawing Kizzy. That's great, you were inspiring! We look forward to using the Kid Pix CDs!"
Cooper School - Burlington
"Some of the adjectives that our teachers used to describe Jill Militzer's Author Day presentation at Cooper School included: awesome, exciting, informative, and inspiring. Jill held the students interest with a terrific multi-media presentation about the writing process using her 'Kizzy' books as a backdrop. Jill has a wonderful rapport with children and they eagerly enter her storybook world. She speaks directly at their level and utilizes Kid Pix and other media strategies to gain and keep their attention. Jill's enthusiasm and excellent speaking voice make her a natural presenter for school assemblies."

"Thanks a lot! This (Kizzy Kid Pix) will be fun to do with the classes ~ what a great idea, thanks for sharing!"
"Wow! I'm impressed! The kids loved it. Good luck with your second book. Maybe later in the year - Mar. or Apr. - when we talk about the writing process - you could come in and share the steps you go through to write a book."
"I just wanted to thank you for coming to Cooper for 'Author Day'. Your presentation was wonderful! You did a great job of explaining how your books evolved and how important 'liking what you do' is to being happy and successful. The kids were very excited about writing their own books about Kizzy! Again thank you so much for providing a wonderful experience for our students. When you are famous I hope you will remember us at Cooper!"
"I really loved your 2nd book and so did the kids. They loved the story line, but also all the side conversations. They laughed and laughed. Thank you for sharing it. Good luck with your 3rd adventure for Kizzy!"
Union Grove Elementary
"It was a pleasure having you here. There's always the possibility that yesterday was the day a new writer was born. It is so exciting to hear how someone gets their ideas, develops a plan and actually publishes the final product! Good Luck with all of your future endeavors!"
