School Staff Comments
Kim Prodahl, Library Specialist, Holy Name of Jesus School, Wayzata, MN
“It was a joy to have Mary Bleckwehl visit Holy Name of Jesus School! We are a Pre-K through 6th grade school and all grades benefited from her visit. She is a dynamic speaker and is clearly a “teacher at heart”. Her book, Henry! Your Late Again is delightful and we would highly recommend her presentation to all schools.”
Anne Jones, Media Specialist Chanhassen Elementary
“Mary, your presentation was a winner! You really have your finger on the pulse of the lower primary age child. Our students loved your presentation, and all your books that I had purchased for our collection were checked out the day after your visit. You are a hit with our elementary crowd. I know our kids will be talking about you for a long time. I’d love to have you back when we have a new crop of youngsters to introduce to you.”
Ken Essay, Principal, Harriet Bishop Elementary, Savage MN
I loved the presentation and our staff and students were thrilled. Thank you again for your time, your energy, and your passion!
Linda Vaplon, Reading Teacher, Wabasha, MN
I’m so happy you enjoyed lunch with the student council members. I know they thought it was very special to dine with a “real” author! Your presentations certainly gave them hope that they can pursue their dreams and make them come true. What an inspiration!
Kelly Goodnature, Title I Coordinator Salem Hills Elementary
The buzz around school after Mary’s presentations in a packed gym was full of excitement and awe! She tailored her delivery perfectly for each group of learners she entertained! Mary was fantastic and the kids love her books!
