Donna Jo is happy to do school visits, including presentations, interactive Q&A sessions, and writing workshops. Below she is at the Wheatley Education Campus in Washington, DC, as a guest of the Open Book Foundation, Dec. 2013


She is also happy to talk at meetings and conferences of educators, librarians, and writers. She has a focus on encouraging new writers, and on meeting the challenges of literacy, particularly in the areas of mathematics and science and in all educational matters concerning the Deaf. Below is a photo at the National Geographic Office in Dec. 2013.



She does writing workshops on demand in all the areas she publishes in. In various summers Donna Jo has taught writing at the Highlights Foundation Writers Workshop in Chautauqua, New York. To the left is a photo from summer 2010 (there were lots to choose from, but this one makes Donna Jo particularly happy).
