Student discussion about the creative writing process, from generating ideas to final drafts.
Teacher in-service to share techniques on how to incorporate mindfulness in the classroom.
Parent meeting to teach ways of raising mindful children and the benefits of doing so.
Homeschool Co-op meeting to help design curriculum based on the mindful and creative child.
Due to COVID-19, all presentations are only offered virtually.
Stacy Burch is a children's book author, ranging from picture books to middle grade novels. Her debut picture book, A Way With Words, comes out in 2022 with Ethicool Publishing. She graduated in 2004 from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA with a B.A. in English and a B.S. in Secondary Education. As a high school English teacher for 10+ years, she happily created stories, edited papers, and fostered budding young minds before continuing her own education to receive her M.A. in Secondary English Curriculum Design from Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, WV. In 2012, Stacy and her husband moved to Brussels, Belgium where they were fortunate to travel the world.
During this time, Stacy taught English as a Second Language at the College of Advertising and Design (CAD) and edited the college's internal and external communications before returning to the USA. Thanks to their passion for regenerative agriculture, Stacy, her husband, and their three young children are hoping to start a sustainable, family mini farm as they also reno their lovely - and slightly creepy - Victorian home. When not writing stories, chasing kids, or freelance editing, Stacy presents virtually on various topics, such as the creative writing process, curriculum design for the modern child, and methods for teaching mindfulness to children.
