Debbie Leland



I have over 30 years experience in education in College Station ISD. Currently I am an elementary librarian and writing conusltant. I am excited about the opportunity to share my writing experiences with students.

During my presentations, I share stories that I wrote when I was in elementary school, my life as a writer, when I began writing, where my story ideas come from, and how a book is produced. The students also help me do an interactive storytelling of The Jalapeño Man.

I do 4 presentations per day. Sessions can be divided between two schools close in proximity if desired. Presentations are between 40- 50 minutes each depending on the age level.

I have recently added a writing workshop available as a session type for 4th grade and older students where we work on adding figurative language and action verbs to enhance their writing.

Recommendation from Sandra Moore at Travis Elementary School in Mineral Wells, TX

"Debbie Leland was an engaging presenter. We squeezed 200 students at a time into our library, and the students were spellbound. Her educational expertise is evident in her presentation. She was so inspiring that a fifth grader was overheard to say, 'I know I was born to be a writer just like Mrs. Leland.'"

I look forward to working with the young writers at your school.
