Here’s what a few teachers, students, and group leaders are saying:
“I couldn’t thank you enough for the time and commitment you annually make to our Authors’ Day. The students always walk away with new ideas for writing, and on top of that, they enjoy your teaching style. It says a lot about you that you connect with the students in such a short time.” Robert Klinger, Ocean Township Intermediate School, 6th Grade Language Arts teacher
“Stacey Wilk visited Girl Scout Troop 1095 in the winter of 2013. She did a ‘writing workshop’ with the girls and educated them on free writing. We were discussing gun control in the wake of the Newtown shootings and her style and approach with the girls helped them to put their feelings and thoughts onto paper and ultimately design a letter to a news reporter. Stacey is a creative, charismatic, engaging, interesting and professional speaker and writer. Her visit was well received and the girls gained a valuable experience in writing.”
