Schedule Melissa for an author visit. During her visit, Melissa will discuss her path to becoming an author, the process of publishing a book, and inspire children to begin their journey of being an author. Melissa has loved reading and writing books since the age of 9 and it is her mission to help inspire future authors to do the same.
What Teachers are saying about Melissa's author visits:
"Melissa was an absolute joy to have in our classroom. Her book "It's Great to Be Me" had a powerful message for our classroom family. She shared her inspirations and spoke of her passion for writing, which encouraged my first graders to share their won story ideas. Everyone left feeling empowered and celebrated. Having each of my students share a positive affirmation about themselves gave my teacher heart chills. We were honored to have her join our classroom." - Mrs. Fleck, 1st Grade Teacher
"We were able to enjoy a virtual visit with Melissa (which isn't easy, especially with Kindergarteners!) and were so impressed not only with her book, but with her presence and her approach to her virtual visit with us. Melissa was attentive and seamlessly answered all of those great 5 year old questions without skipping a beat. She made each child feel like their question was the most important question she's been asked and thoroughly explained in a way that was easy for Kindergarteners to understand. I cannot wait to add "Author Visit Melissa Ahonen" to in my yearly lesson plans and hope to be able to have her visit us in person one day!"
- Mrs. Molly, Kindergartener
"My students are raving about the author meet today! There are so excited. I have even heard a ew of them repeating affirmations since Melissa came in. Thank you SO much for taking the time to come into both classes, share about yourself and read your story. I also appreciated the colouring pages too!" - Ms Hayward, Cobourg, Ontario
