School Visits

Known for her high energy, delightfully funny and engaging presentations, author M.J. Hayes is available for school shows.

As a former teacher, M.J. knows how to grab children’s attention and keep them engaged. 

This is an interactive presentation. She is also available for big people speaking engagements for groups and civic organizations.

When a child reaches his/her hand onto my shoulder, I realize they have been captured to ‘learn’. My ability to enter a child’s world and to understand with empathy, their strengths or weakness is what I bring to the schools where I volunteer.  

I love when I go to the Elementary School in the St. John’s County School District and work with the Kindergarten children.

I provide my services totally free of charge. This is my way of giving back to my community. I love when I go to the Elementary School in the St. John’s County School District and work with the Kindergarten children.

I had a lot of fun visiting my local library and sharing my Thumbs Up Book with the children. They were a very enthusiastic group!
