Engaging and Entertaining

I was a little worried that the program might not appeal to my middle school students, but WOW! Even my 8th graders were on the edge of their seats straining to see what was happening. We held a morning program, but all of our students were still talking about it through the afternoon. Multiple students came to see me in the library afterward to check out books on magic. Steve was extremely easy and professional to work with and very prompt in all of his communications with me. What a memorable way to celebrate our school’s reading accomplishment!

Wow!

Mr. Somers was AMAZING! His Standing Tall show is packed with inspiration on making good choices and being a hero. For 50 minutes, nearly 600 students sat quietly and intently. He brings the books to life through his magic. I highly recommend getting The Amazing Teacher to your school!

Steve is everything we had hoped for and more. He captivated kids and adults alike with a very heart-warming performance culminating the virtues of courage, patience, and kindness that our UPWARD players and cheerleaders learned throughout their season.

Entertaining and Educational

Our school recently enjoyed another performance by the Amazing Teacher, Steve Somers. His “Arctic Express” program entertains and educates students about Christmas traditions around the world. He uses literary selections to introduce each cultural celebration, along with magic tricks and other fun activities. The best part is when he makes it “snow” at the end of the show! Teachers ask for him to come back again and again, and students of all ages enjoy his shows.

Entertaining and Educational

The Amazing Teacher did a wonderful job during four assemblies at our school. I was particularly impressed with his behavior management which fit right in line with our schools PBIS initiative. In addition, the Amazing Teacher differentiated his shows, accounting for the developmental differences between the ages/grade levels. Thank you, Amazing Teacher!

Mission Accomplished! He was Great!

I got a lot of feedback from teachers saying they loved the program. I also had students coming to the library asking for the books featured. This is an e-mail a first grade teacher send me: “I just wanted you to know how much I loved the assembly yesterday! The kids couldn’t stop talking about it and were actually telling each other about the different things they wanted to look up when we have library next. Mission accomplished! He was great!”

Enthralling!

Enthralling is the best word to describe Steve’s program. Steve is a natural storyteller and relates well with the children. They love his magic tricks and his “corny” jokes. The adults laughed as hard as the kids did and also appreciated the strong message about the value of books and reading. Steve is living his dream and enjoying every minute of it!
