  1. I wanted to inquire about the possibility of having you visit my 10th grade English classes in November, to facilitate in the planning phase of short story-writing capstone project. Is this the best way to communicate with you?
    Thank you,

    1. I tried replying to you via email but have not heard from you so it may have not gone through. If you are still interested in a school visit, please resend your contact information. I would love to visit your class.

  2. I am considering using Take Me There in my Intermediate ESL class with 9th and 10th graders. I would love access to any lesson plans, projects, activities, etc. that I could use with my class. I feel like the themes and issues raised will interest my students who are predominantly from lower income homes and many of whom have faced similar challenges with family and the law. My email is I look forward to hearing from you.
