Paul is a great speaker and a great workshop leader. Paul’s been in my school a half a dozen times presenting to large groups (200+ kids & teachers) and at other times in workshops in the classrooms. He’s also done workshops with my teachers in the area of engaging kids in reading and writing. Paul is dynamic in this area. He is one of the best leaders I have ever worked with, and he is quick to demonstrate that he is the real deal. Authentic. Genuine. Dynamic! And I haven’t even gotten to his books that have inspired more readers in my school than I can ever remember. The last time I saw this kind of reaction was when Harry Potter series came out. His books are brilliant and they engaged kids at every reading level – and mostly, those reluctant readers who are challenged in their reading. Paul’s books just seem to have a magic about them that has these kids wanting to read more.
