School Visits
School Visits

My first name is pronounced sue-DIP-ta. It is exactly phonetic. What better way to drive home the importance of phonics to your students?
I’ve visited dozens of schools all over the country, and a few in the UK as well (which means I have presented in English and in British — and trust me, there’s a difference!). I have spoken in front of audiences of 10 and audiences of 250 (and both make me nervous enough to vomit — though I've finally gotten a handle on that). So I promise to bring to your students a very high level of professionalism and experience. 
Children laugh at me. I choose to believe it is because of my excellent child-like sense of humor. And not because of my offbeat sense of style.
I’ve got a presentation to fit the needs of every student you want me to visit. For example: preschoolers can smooch and roar along with my picture books, 2nd graders can learn about the steps involved in writing a story and preview brand new books, and 5th graders can participate in writing workshops.
I’ve been on Radio Sweden. That makes me practically a movie star. And celebrity books are always a big hit, right?
I will help you and your school prepare for the visit in every way, including sending along activities and teacher guides that can be used long in advance of the visit to get the students excited, as well as after the visit. Ordering books? I’ll help you with that. Need help with anything else? I’m here for you.
 I’ll teach your students the importance of using strong descriptive phrases like “fabulously fabulous” and “fantastically fantastic.” And then I’ll teach them about editing and revision.
I’m willing to write a top ten list even though it is very difficult to come up with ten ways to describe yourself as fabulously fabulous.
FUN FUN FUN. We always have fun during my presentations. There's a game show. There are prizes. No one leaves empty-handed. I'd tell you more but then I'd have to...you know.
Because no one will work harder to make sure your students get the most out of the author visit. 
Need more reasons? 

TOP TEN REASONS 
TO INVITE ME TO YOUR SCHOOL.
Drumroll, please.

—Ale Maciunas, Librarian

"Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen's visit has sparked both the students’ and the teachers’ imaginations. Through her lively interactive presentations and relatable style she taught us so much about the writing process. A truly fabulous experience, we wished her visit would have lasted the whole year."
