I am an elementary school teacher and have taught second grade for four years. I love Read-Aloud time and being around students of all ages. Please get in touch with me by emailing me at Rfaruqi84@gmail.com with the Subject Line “Author Visit.” I look forward to working with you, incorporating Lailah’s Lunchbox in your lesson, and in customizing a visit that fits your group’s needs! So far I have presented on the stages of the writing process, character development, and more. I am also available via Skype and good old snail mail to answer students’ questions – just send me an email to set it up!
