Who Is Amazing Teacher
Top Three Things Said About Our Shows
I Was Speechless!
When Mr. Somers pulled the table cloth off the table and nothing moved, I was speechless!
AMAZING Steve is AMAZING!
We have hosted Steve for several years for our Read Across America week or to end the year for our Field day. The kids enjoy his presentations and his message that reading and imagination are key. Our staff and students enjoy him every year!
I learned to be responsible!
Mr. Somers was amazing! During the show I learned to be responsible and that the American flag stands for citizenship.
Greatly anticipated! Never disappoints!
Steve has been coming to Centerville for 5+ years and he always delivers an enjoyable, memorable show. The giggles and cheers you hear coming from the auditorium speaks volumes of his ability to capture an audience. We will continue to welcome The Amazing Teacher at our school for years to come!
Steve gave a wonderful performance!! The students and staff enjoyed it immensely. The children have been checking out magic books ever since. A veteran teacher who will be retiring this year told me that in all of her years of teaching this was the best assembly she had ever been too! Another teacher commented what a wonderful job Steve did dismissing the children…they were so quiet and calm! Overall, it was a fantastic show!
We had a blast!
Our K-5 students had so much fun watching Amazing Steve during his Jingle Bell Magic Show. It was awesome to see the looks of surprise and excitement on their faces throughout the entire show. They were totally engaged and haven’t stopped talking about it since. Working with Mr. Steve was easy and he made sure to help us through each step of organizing his visit! We can’t wait to have him back again.
Engaging and Entertaining!
The faculty and staff loved the program and have expressed interest in having Steve come back to E. Wilson Morrison. the program was engaging and entertaining and that the students and faculty loved the program.
The students are still talking about Celebrate Seuss! Everyone enjoyed the show – from preschoolers to 5th graders! Thanks for the great learning opportunity!
Always a great performance!
Steve Somers always gives a professional and entertaining show, no matter what the theme is. He is one of the only performers I know who consistently showcases specific books in his programs. He is always mindful of libraries’ literacy goals and he focuses on the importance of reading and the joy of reading in every single show. We had Jingle Bell Magic in December 2019 and the children were absolutely delighted. The laughter and applause were proof that everyone enjoyed the show. Children and adults lined up to pet Snowball the bunny and expressed their appreciation for a terrific show. Thanks, Steve, for book talking and providing quality educational entertainment!
It was AMAZING!
Please invite him to present for your Event!
This is probably my fifth time seeing your performance. You always do a wonderful job. The students are engaged and have so much fun!
Audience loves Hopper!
A great show that entertains the whole family.
The students and teachers once again enjoyed a great show on Friday! Build It! Thanks, Steve, for making reading exciting for the kids!
I Laughed A Lot!
I laughed a lot. I also learned some pretty cool facts. But most of all, I became interested in magic.
How’d he do that???
My kiddos were so happy to watch the Salute to Seuss performance. They especially liked the rabbit trick. We unfortunately had another magician the Friday before his show, Monday, that was much louder and wilder, but the teachers all said they liked the more calm, musical performance and different showmanship from Magician Steve Somers.
I invited him at my previous school and they all love his show as well. It was a perfect kick-off to our Read Across America week and included many books.
Others took the photos, so I don’t have any, but it was great and he did two, PreK-1 and 2-4.
Great Summer Reading Program
We were so impressed with Steve’s program at our library. The children were very attentive and truly enjoyed the program.
Salute to Seuss
What an amazing show! The students and faculty enjoyed every minute of the show. It was a great way to kick off Read Across America week! Thank you Steve!
Steve is everything we had hoped for and more. He captivated kids and adults alike with a very heart-warming performance culminating the virtues of courage, patience, and kindness that our UPWARD players and cheerleaders learned throughout their season. Our Pastor, Children’s Minister, parents, and myself were thoroughly impressed with the magic and storytelling that took place. WE WILL DEFINITELY have Steve and his wife back!
Magical, Funny, Amazing and Talented!
His show made me feel like I want to go on stage with him. He was magical, funny, amazing and talented!
He was magical!
He was magical. I learned that when you don’t know something you should go get a book.
We Loved the Program!
The teachers and students loved the program!
We truly enjoyed Steve’s program. He had magic which I personally had not seen before. All the children had a great time, as well as the adults.
Guaranteed to Reach Even the Youngest Audience.
Steve Somers always presents an entertaining program guaranteed to reach even the youngest audience. Our students are still chanting “Read to Achieve” as their motto.
Our students enjoyed Mr. Steve so much! They are still talking about both shows he performed for us during the school day and the evening show for the families of our students! He is engaging and the students loved the magic! We love having him here at our school!
Fun filled day!
The students and staff at Morgan Elementary are still talking about Mr. Somers and all the magic tricks! The Celebrate Reading show was a perfect choice as we start our Bikes for Books program to encourage reading. Steve’s program is organized, entertaining, and requires very little prep time for the school. He brings everything! What a fun filled day!
Students and Staff Loved Steve’s Edutainment!
“The students and staff loved Steve’s edutainment so much they want him back next year for a different program.”
We were thrilled to have Steve Somers at our library. I smiled so much my cheeks hurt! Many of the children who attended the “Salute to Seuss” program have informed me that they are going to be magicians when they grow up. One little boy even said to his mother that she had to help him follow his dreams because Mr. Steve said so!
This really is the best assembly we have ever had! I recommend it!
This is a fantastic show. It is very entertaining and presents a great message!!
Children Will Be Amazed!
Steve Somers does an excellent job of captivating his audience with magic and all the while reinforcing how magical reading a book can be. Children will be amazed and delighted by his use of book characters and real life experiences of how a book can open a door to help you achieve your goals and dreams in life.
Everyone loved it!
Steve did a great job integrating magic in while talking about character traits in the Set Sail presentation. He kept everyone’s attention throughout the 45-50min show. We loved how he tied in the military appreciation while talking about the colors of the flag because we have a large military-affiliated population at our school. I think it’s safe to say we all fell in love with David Hopperfield!
Enthralling is the best word to describe Steve’s program. Steve is a natural storyteller and relates well with the children. They love his magic tricks and his “corny” jokes. The adults laughed as hard as the kids did and also appreciated the strong message about the value of books and reading. Steve is living his dream and enjoying every minute of it!
Great Show! It was engaging for students and parents! Kids love the magic and are learning while having fun!
Engaging and Entertaining
I was a little worried that the program might not appeal to my middle school students, but WOW! Even my 8th graders were on the edge of their seats straining to see what was happening. We held a morning program, but all of our students were still talking about it through the afternoon. Multiple students came to see me in the library afterward to check out books on magic. Steve was extremely easy and professional to work with and very prompt in all of his communications with me. What a memorable way to celebrate our school’s reading accomplishment!
Steve is absolutely AMAZING!
Steve is absolutely AMAZING! He engages the students and the teachers in his mesmerizing performances. Our Anderson Creek Cubs look forward to seeing his shows every year.
Mission Accomplished! He was Great!
I got a lot of feedback from teachers saying they loved the program. I also had students coming to the library asking for the books featured. This is an e-mail a first grade teacher send me: “I just wanted you to know how much I loved the assembly yesterday! The kids couldn’t stop talking about it and were actually telling each other about the different things they wanted to look up when we have library next. Mission accomplished! He was great!”
I Highly Recommend Him!
Steve Somers is an extremely qualified entertainer who knows how to get across important messages to children in ways they enjoy and remember. His extensive background in education makes him an ideal performer for school programs, and I highly recommend him.
Emphasizes the Power of Reading!
Steve Somers knows how to captivate the students and the teachers while emphasizing the power of reading. . . Thank you for such a wonderful afternoon.
He is our favorite assembly
Steve is so edutaining! Everyone enjoys his shows. He is our favorite assembly and worth every cent!
Good Clean Entertainment
We were able to book Steve on short notice and our group really enjoyed the fun. Steve didn’t know that I had invited our Child Development Center Children in as well, so he quickly switched gears (his program) to appeal to the children. The Seniors enjoyed watching the children’s participation and ALL enjoyed petting the rabbit!
Amazing teacher, Steve Somers…an understatement! The magic show was show was awesome! The show was creative, and so well put together, that everyone (teachers and students included) didn’t want the show to end. Mr. Somers created a show that was filled with heartfelt stories of his childhood, that actually made you feel as if you took a journey with him to enjoy his “Christmas Story.” Only this Ralphie came with magical tricks, which were phenomenal!
Thank you for allowing me to be a kid again with the bright-eyed kindergarteners, who never wanted the show to end.
Always Highlights Books and Reading!
One of my favorite aspects of Steve Somers’ shows is that he always, always stresses the importance of reading and imagination. He does great mini-booktalks in every show, highlighting books that are relevant to his topic and of interest to kids. People ask for books after his performances thanks to him giving attention to books and reading. He is reliable, professional, always on time and so easy to work with. His magic and message are great for all ages and he has a wonderful selection of shows to offer. Steve works to create new shows for each summer’s reading program theme, too, so you can book him in advance knowing you will have a terrific show for your library. Thank you, Steve Somers! You are an amazing teacher!
Sooooo much fun!
The students as well as the teachers loved the show! We haven’t had an assembly since CoVid, and what a way to get back at it again! It was fabulous hearing the laughter ringing in the gymnasium! Steve does a fantastic job of getting the audience involved and engaged during his performance! I highly recommend this show!
Students were very engaged during the show.
A HUGE SUCCESS!!
Thank you so much for the FABULOUS show. We enjoyed ourselves immensely, and you were FANTASTIC! Our scholars were blown away by your many talents. Bravo! Thank you again for a pleasant afternoon and an engaging performance.
His Programs Are Fresh and Imaginative!
Steve Somers is a professional. His programs are educational and entertaining. He can handle any crowd and all ages. His programs are fresh and imaginative, never a repetition of others. He keeps audiences involved from start to finish! Our very favorite performer of all!
The show was really funny!
It was really funny when Mr. Somers was searching for the map. I learned that knowledge is a treasure for everyone.
Steve Somers Amazes again!
Steve Somers Amazes students and teachers again! Once again Steve provided a show that was entertaining and amazing to all who watched! K through 5th grade and the staff were enthralled! His magic tricks wove seamlessly into a performance that focused on books and curriculum infused with character! They are already asking me when he will be back! I’ve had him 5 years in a row and every year is different and great!
Fun, engaging and inclusive!
Steve had our students’ attention from the very beginning. He spent a whole day at our school with multiple shows and a classroom visit and every show had the same enthusiasm and energy. Our students have missed having these types of experiences over the past few years and we hope to make “The Amazing Teacher” an annual event!
Engaging educational show
The students, parents, and teachers loved this show. He kept everyone actively engaged with his wonderful magic and sense of humor, but managed to teach reading skills at the same time. I would hightly recommend this to any school.
He was very entertaining!
Mr. Somers was funny and very entertaining when he couldn’t find Hopper the rabbit.
Everyone Asked When Steve Was Coming Back!
Steve provides a quality, SOL linked program that stresses the importance of books and reading. 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!
Steve does a fabulous job relating to young children with important character building messages through exciting magic and wonderful books! He has a way with talking the the students so they can understand his wonderful messages!
Steve Somers, The Amazing Teacher Never Disappoints!!
Steve is a returning favorite to our Community Reading Festival each year. He is engaging and entertaining for children and parents. He is the kind of entertainment needed for the over 1200 participants we have each year! His show is always a positive feedback comment we have on our evaluation cards. He is truly AMAZING!!
Salute to Seuss Wildly Entertaining
We had Steve come for his Salute to Seuss program, and after two years with no assemblies, it was just what we needed. The program was highly engaging, wildly entertaining, and content appropriate for our K-5th graders. It was so nice to see the students laugh and interact with someone from outside the building after so long of not being able to have these experiences. Thank you, Steve, for a wonderful day!
Students hardly stop laughing
We love having Mr. Steve visit our school. We love all of the shows he has shared with us so far. He is very kind and hilarious, the kids hardly stop laughing. We look forward to having him again next year!
An Absolute Professional
We were very happy to invite Steve Somers back to our library this summer. From my initial booking request to the clean-up after the show, Steve was an absolute professional. When you book an Amazing Teacher program you are getting his years of experience as an educator which truly shines through. My library patrons could not stop raving about the show and asking for him to come back next year. Thank you for the amazing program!
Entertaining and Educational
Our school recently enjoyed another performance by the Amazing Teacher, Steve Somers. His “Arctic Express” program entertains and educates students about Christmas traditions around the world. He uses literary selections to introduce each cultural celebration, along with magic tricks and other fun activities. The best part is when he makes it “snow” at the end of the show! Teachers ask for him to come back again and again, and students of all ages enjoy his shows.
Steve performed his Arctic Express and Jingle Bell Magic shows at our library branches, and our kids loved it! These high-energy shows got the whole audience into the holiday spirit with exciting magic tricks that had even the adults stumped! The action, humor and music kept even the youngest children engaged, and they all lined up eagerly afterwards to pet Snowball the rabbit. I had multiple families come up to tell me how much they enjoyed the performance. Having Steve at our library was a great experience!
Mr. Somers performed two captivating shows for our students and parents. His shows stress the importance of reading while entertaining the students with magic. We can not wait to have Mr. Somers back in 2020!
I thought is was amazing when the bunny rabbit appeared in the treasure chest.
This show is TRULY amazing!
Mr. Somers never fails to mesmerize our students! We get so excited every time he visits our school! He IS truly amazing!
Edge of Seat
What an amazing program to kick off Read Across America week! It was fun to see the students on the edge of their seats awaiting what might come next!
Fun! Fun! Fun!
It’s always a pleasure to have a performer who obviously enjoys what he does and who is happy to share with his audiences. The children and adults who attended our program went away with headshakes of wonder, saying “How did he do that?” Smiles on each face said, “He was funny” and “I liked Mr. Somers”!
Thanks, for a great day!
Summer 2019 Space Trek Program
We have enjoyed Steve Somers’ programs for several years and always find him to be organized, helpful, professional and very entertaining for children and parents. He is always on time and not only offers a fantastic and educational program but helps promote with great posters and bookmarks–and he donates a children’s book! We look forward to his visiting The Archdale Public Library in the future.
This is the best program we’ve had at our school. Awesome – Thanks so much!

The Amazing Teacher is highly recommended by me as a wonderful performer to bring into your school, center or library. Steve is very engaging and keeps the kids involved throughout the show. Kids and parents loved the performance and had many nice comments afterwards.
Entertaining and Educational
The Amazing Teacher did a wonderful job during four assemblies at our school. I was particularly impressed with his behavior management which fit right in line with our schools PBIS initiative. In addition, the Amazing Teacher differentiated his shows, accounting for the developmental differences between the ages/grade levels. Thank you, Amazing Teacher!
Amazing time for students and staff
Steve is a delight to work with and the show is phenomenal. The students and staff laughed and learned throughout the entire performance. We will welcome Steve back again and again!
Steve’s Programs are Great!
The students have enjoyed each program that Steve has presented, and this is the third year he has been at my school. They always talk about “the Magician” Steve’s programs are great, and the children will love them.
Mr. Somers was AMAZING! His Standing Tall show is packed with inspiration on making good choices and being a hero. For 50 minutes, nearly 600 students sat quietly and intently. He brings the books to life through his magic. I highly recommend getting The Amazing Teacher to your school!
The students LOVED the show! Great magic tricks! Even the teachers were amazed! Will definitely be inviting him back again next year!!!!

We were truly amazed!
Steve gives great assemblies that promote reading using magic tricks. I was impressed with his knowledge of our SOLs, his management of the students, and his reasonable price.
Even though we had a small audience, Steve was just as engaging as with a large audience. All of the children and parents enjoyed the show.
Mr. Somers was amazing during his Salute to Seuss assembly. His assembly was highly entertaining and engaging all the while communicating a powerful message to promote reading.
