Our students were engaged during this assembly for the entire time. Not only was the assembly fun, but it was educational and inspiring. Steve was funny, kind, had great management skills, and showed a genuine love for what he was doing. Our students had so much fun and they are still talking about it! I would definitely recommend this program to my friends. I would tell them that the students were attentive the entire time and that program delivered an up-beat and inspirational message. We had a great time and the students are excited about reading and following their dreams. We can't wait to have you back at our school!
Steve provides a quality, SOL linked program for all ages at a reasonable price. He is a former educator and that shows in his ability to gain and keep student's attention. I love that Steve stresses the importance of books and reading and all the things they can discover in books and at the library. Steve is an incredible magician! The students and the teachers were amazed. I have never had everyone thank me for booking a program as they did with this one. Everyone asked when he was coming back!

Princess Anne Elementary

"Your science theme was right on target. A 5th grade teacher stated your program and vocabulary list targeted the End of Grade Science test perfectly. She made a bingo game from the vocabulary words and used it as a part her science lesson."
"Steve is a master at keeping kids attention and getting them actively involved in his presentation. He is able to relate to very young children in an age appropriate way yet alter his delivery for older students."
