Celebrate stories with Katie in your classroom

This school year, teach your students that their story matters.

Help them discover how that story is one of the most meaningful gifts they can give themselves and the people they love. Empower and connect them through written and spoken words.

You and I will do it together!

With my engaging journals and story prompting products, your students will:

  • Grow
  • Celebrate their life stories
  • Discover greater joy and gratitude
  • Nurture deeper bonds with each other and people they care about

You hold the future in your hands, teachers! I'm so grateful for the gift you're giving our world.

It's my pleasure to merge our talents to impact your students.
