I am available to do school visits in the New York City area and elsewhere.
I also offer virtual studio visits via Skype.
Here is a note from Amy Johnson, a Technology Integration Specialist based in St. Louis, Missouri:
The second graders in Mrs. Mask's class at Hanna Woods Elementary had the pleasure of "meeting" Sergio Ruzzier via a Skype video call. After reading several of Mr. Ruzzier's books through an author study in communication arts, the students formulated questions about the books, the writing process, and what it is like to be an author and illustrator. The opportunity to have their questions answered firsthand was an invaluable learning experience. As Mr. Ruzzier sat in his studio in New York, he talked to the students about the craft of writing and illustrating a book from beginning to end. The students continue to make connections based on their learning from the Skype session. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to him for providing such a rich learning experience for our students.
To see how one of my books kindled a wonderful class discussion, please read what a Brooklyn elementary school teacher wrote to me.
If interested please email me with any questions.
