"Sharon Warchol is a word wizard. She is quite the storyteller with the written word and even more enchanting in her writing workshop. Sharon’s presentation held my 4th grade students’ attention for the entire session, and she had them on the edge of their seats and fully engaged. Sharon proved that reading and writing are full body activities and very enjoyable. Sharon left them wanting more! The students did not want the presentation to end, but wanted to hear more. Some highlights of Sharon’s visit~~”Snatch the Sloth,” “What would happen if,” and displaying examples of the students’ writings and photos. How’d she do that!?!?!?"

-Ann Fetterman, M.Ed., Reading Specialist, 4th grade ELA teacher, Eden Hall Upper Elementary School, Pine Richland School District

"I enjoyed Sharon's interactive presentation as much as the students! I would highly recommend her to any middle school looking for a memorable author visit. Her creative activities kept the kids interested and encouraged them to write. Five stars!"

-Allison Hess, PTA, Boyce Elementary School

"We cannot thank you enough for speaking to our classes. What a wonderful inspiration you were for our students. But we'd like to make one correction to your presentation: You ARE extraordinary! Looking forward to sharing your stories!"

- Jody McIlvaine, 6th grade teacher, Cecil Intermediate School

"Mrs. Warchol would never describe herself as extraordinary, but to all who came in contact with her on this day, that’s exactly what she is."

- Susie Lavallee, 6th grade teacher, Cecil Intermediate School
