“Media Specialist’s, Jamie Engle is a local author. We just had Jaime at our school and she put on her “Win Lose or Draw with Words” program for our 3rd-6th grade students. They loved her and didn’t want to stop. I highly recommend her if you’re looking for an author visit.”
–Lee Alonso, Media Specialist, Roosevelt Elementary School
“Thank you very much for the writing workshops this week in the Melbourne Writing Center of Eastern Florida State College. I have heard nothing but positive comments all week about your writing seminars. Your positive demeanor and conversational presentation style allow the audience to be set at ease, which further allows participants to absorb your wealth of knowledge shared during these sessions. People I talked to felt a connection to you, which prompted their willingness to share their own ideas and ask a range of questions.”
–Sharon Cronk-Raby, Melbourne Writing Center Coordinator, EFSC
“Jaimie is willing to come out to your class and tell her story of how Clifton developed into a story and the tenacity it took to get the book published. She can bring books which she will also autograph when students purchase them. While visiting at Quest Elementary School, Jaimie read aloud from the book along with my students. Everyone took a character parts (like Reader’s Theatre) which thoroughly engaged my gifted students who begged us to “just read one more chapter together.” A teacher’s resource to accompany the novel will be available in the autumn of 2014.”
–Susan Reiter, gifted resource teacher, Quest Elementary School
“Jaimie Engle is my favorite classroom visitor. She establishes rapport quickly and easily with students from 4th through 6th grade and creates activities that educate about the writing process. The kids write with joy and enthusiasm under her tutelage.”
–Kitt Kane, gifted resource teacher, Suntree Elementary School
“Palm Bay Elementary School enjoyed a family night with author Jaimie Engle on February 19th. Jaimie has a natural way of drawing students and families into her love of writing. She demonstrated how words “build” others up. We enjoyed her time with us and expect to see her back to provide some writing workshops in the future. ”
–Terri Rollins, Literacy Coach, Palm Bay Elementary School
Jaimie's presence in our Young Writer's Camps has supported our mission as an organization - to celebrate every student's unique voice and empower them to be a positive influence in their community. We appreciate you Jaimie! Thanks!

–Anne Skinner, Literacy Coach, Mims Elementary
“Very professional, engaging and laid back! The perfect trifecta! Students loved meeting you and learning about your craft! Our middle-schoolers were truly inspired!”
–Michele Hipolito, Ocoee Middle School
“We really enjoyed Jaimie’s presentation. My students begged me to start Clifton Chase, so we started it right away. We read 2 chapters and they didn’t want me to put it down. The writing style is wonderful and it engages the reader. You have earned some new fans and definitely make reading enjoyable for my young students and myself as well! I love that you have an underlying message of bullying in your book and presentation also, because children face bullying so much these days!”
–Ansley Freeman, Turner Elementary 3rd grade teacher
