2013 has been an exciting year for Shelly Simoneau Stories, with 5 published children’s BOOKS and eBooks now available through any online retailer all around the world! My stories have a REACH as far as London, Haiti, and Africa!
Shelly Simoneau Stories loves to CONNECT to EDUCATION. As an educator over the past 20 years, I have developed my stories for enjoyment in the home as well as for use in the classroom setting. Each story is a unique learning experience that kids and adults can easily relate to. I am so thankful to have been able to use my personal stories to promote character education and curriculum connections in Kansas schools in 2013!
Shelly Simoneau Stories loves to TRAVEL and SHARE the stories. I am delighted that I was able to travel over 5,000 miles this year, sharing my books and many other stories at schools, libraries, conventions, and public events across Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma! The journey has been amazing, as well as the many people I have encountered along the way.
Shelly Simoneau Stories loves to LEARN about TECHNOLOGY. I skyped 1250 miles across the country this year for Read Across America, connecting Elmont Elementary students in Topeka, KS to Kennedy Elementary students in Roxbury, NJ! What an amazing experience for everyone involved! I also highlighted my current iPad apps at the Logan Elementary Summer Enrichment Program in Topeka, KS this past summer.
So what’s new in 2014?
I’ll be kicking off the New Year with Lowman Hills Elementary in Topeka, KS for a Kansas Day celebration reading night in January. In 2014 I will also be delivering the keynote storytelling presentation at the Barton County Community College Education Fair. Look for more iPad apps, as well as Tinker in the Tanker, my next book focusing on patience and courage, to be published in late fall!
Shelly Simoneau Stories is looking forward, where stories are never left behind!
Thank you for your continued support! I hope to see you in 2014!
