I am committed to engaging with educators and students from 4th grade to the college level:
I am extremely flexible and excited to make things work. Please contact me, and we can work something out. I love collaborating to figure out what will work best together!
I am also available for library visits and small group discussions.
I love doing VIRTUAL visits and offer free 30-minute sessions to individual classrooms.
To set up a virtual school visit or Skype session, please email me at email@example.com
Thanks so much to the teachers, educators, and students I have had the chance to connect with! Here are some references!
"Chris's presentation helped students become better writers and for me to become a stronger writing teacher! Students were inspired to write more and revise their writing after the presentation. Also, students love his book. So far I have heard, "It is such an amazing book" and "I stayed up all night to finish the book." Gina Wickstead, Middle School teacher, High Tech Middle.
Students embraced the main character Ari. Chris’ personal connection with the story made his presentation more meaningful. Highly recommend.” Mimi Yogaratnam, Director of Information Services, St Mary's School.
“I had the privilege to host Chris Baron at my bookstore and then to introduce him to teachers at High Tech Middle School where he did a presentation. Chris is a wonderful speaker who inspires students to read and write. He is funny, a master at his craft and so pleasant and genuine. Hosting Chris at any school or bookstore event is a treat!”
