COMMENTS PEOPLE HAVE SHARED ABOUT MY WRITING/SPEAKING:
“Thanks, Kayleen, for the great article. I love it when everything in the article is correct and nothing is misquoted. That doesn’t happen very often! Thanks for making it happen which is the result of your being an excellent journalist.
Char Binkley, former director of WBCL Radio
I very much appreciated the story you did about my teaching career and philosophies. There were many positive comments from the teachers at Norwell Middle School. It is a privilege for me to have the story and photo posted on the Blog page of your website. I will be referring family and friends to your website!

We really enjoyed watching your program on Indonesia. It was a fun and informative evening. Please let your daughter know that we also really appreciated hearing her fist hand accounts of life in Indonesia!”

“I can’t thank you and Mandy enough for doing the presentation last night. I can’t believe we already have thank you notes!!! We should be writing YOU and Mandy thank you notes. You both did a fantastic job! I felt like this was a great introduction to a new culture for our kids. It was a great chance for the kids to learn about another part of the world and another culture. It looked like all the kids had a fantastic time. I was really impressed with how many of the kids were willing to try the Indonesian avocado juice and the other unique snacks you brought. It was a unique opportunity for everyone who came to the program.”

Here are a few of their comments:
*Mrs. Reusser was so good. I want to be a writer just like her when I get that old.
“The children in my classroom were enthralled with Kayleen and her published books! Three of my students went to the Bluffton Library that night and checked out her books. They are now in the process of writing their own book. Thanks for adding such excitement to our author study! We can’t wait for the next book!”

“Your talk was very inspiring. As I watched the faces of those in attendance (22 in all, from toddler to older adults) I could tell you relate well to all ages. Aside from the specific information you gave about the writing/getting published process, I found you to be an excellent motivational speaker. I know this both from feedback and for myself personally… You are a great example of a person who has set a goal and taken steps to achieve it. You need to keep telling your story! We plan to have you return to discuss future books.”
~ Cathy Lambert, Young Adult Librarian at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, IN
