High Praise for Stacey R. Campbell!

 

Stacey Campbell’s author presentation at Fidalgo Elementary School was exemplary! Not only did she totally engage and receive high praise from the students at each grade level, but also from staff and parents. We have had numerous visiting authors over the years, but I think Stacey stands out as being one of the most appreciated, as far as the content and “realness” of her presentation. She really knows how to relate to students in a way that is both fun and informative.

We are looking forward to having her back soon!

Stacey Campbell is a hit for school author visits!  Her enthusiasm for writing and research are equally balanced with an obvious knowledge of how kids’ brains work.  She engages large crowds in small spaces and small crowds in large spaces.  Teachers and parents alike find her presentations fill a curriculum need and bring joy to the classroom.  More than that, though, kids love her books.

Our school district was blessed to have Stacey Campbell join us as a visiting author. Students from kindergarten through 8th grade benefitted from her energetic presentations, each tailored to the age level of the audience. She has written a wide range of books; a picture book for the younger readers, a pirate book for the middle grades and the Lakeview Series for the middle/high school readers. Common threads in her presentations include reading, writing every day, research, never give up attitude, and plot lines are everywhere. The students were engaged and inspired, the teachers were impressed and everyone involved was a winner.

I enjoyed her presentation and so did the kids. It aligned with what we are working on in writing, giving it real life application. I’d like to have her back.

Several Deaf students attended Ms. Campbell’s presentation at the upper elementary level. They came away with all kinds of ideas for writing. They grabbed paper & pencils and started writing upon returning to the classroom. When recess came they asked to take their work outside to continue to write.   From this I think that Ms. Campbell was successful in her goal to encourage students to write. Smile.

I felt Stacey Campbell shared valuable information about perseverance in writing even though she had dyslexia. She gave students a sense of how writers draw from all of the experiences of their lives, and the characters around them. Her comments about real life being “research” for novels were insightful. Students came away feeling energized and inspired.

I especially appreciate that Ms. Campbell has allowed one of my students to e-mail her, and has even read a few chapters of the student’s current story, providing some feedback on them. The student is thrilled. Not all authors would make time to do that.

I enjoyed Stacey’s presentation especially her candid ness about her experience in school. I am sure there were students who could relate and were encouraged to know that they should not give up on their ambitions in life.

Jeanette McChesney, Middle and High School Life Skills Teacher

I loved her presentation.  I found it inspiring and I liked the way she gave specific ways to become a writer; research, writing daily, reading, etc.  Her enthusiasm was great.  I wish the presentation could have been longer because I think the students’ attention was still on her and they wanted more.
