Teachers’ Notes

Teachers’ Notes

“Kristin catered to the age group appropriately and had the students wanting to know more, in fact it was a struggle to get them out the door for lunch. Engaging and fun activities encouraged student participation. I highly recommend Kristin visiting your school.”

Kate Perry, Junior School Library Inquiry Integrator – Barker College

“Kristin was fantastic as she launched her series with our Year 3 girls.  Her interactive presentation had them all begging to be involved and they absolutely loved hearing about her pets, family, who she’s met and worked with and where else she gets her ideas from.  The girls were buzzing all day and our PDHPE teachers loved the positive impact her visit has had on their lessons too.”

Svetlana Paul, Junior School Teacher Librarian – Tara Anglican School for Girls

“Each audience was enthralled by Kristin’s warm, entertaining, and entirely relatable presentation.”

Kym Gray, Learning Enhancement Teacher – St Augustine’s College

“The students had a lot of questions and Kristin kept them engaged throughout the whole hour.”

Kylie Sheehan, Teacher in the Library – St John the Apostle Catholic Primary School

“Kristin wowed us with her smile, her great sense of humour and her enthusiasm for story-telling. A huge thank you for inspiring our budding readers and writers.” 

Angela Debien, St Martin's Catholic Primary School – Davidson
