What Teachers Say:
Robin Moore’s virtual visit was a terrific addition to our social studies curriculum this year! He provided valuable information about Native American history and culture and shared authentic artifacts with the students. His storytelling was engaging and interactive, even through a computer screen; students remained attentive throughout the presentation and had fun incorporating movement and callbacks throughout his delightful tales. While we miss the excitement of having Mr. Moore physically present to build a tipi with our students, this virtual visit was the perfect option to enhance our studies this year.

I first met Robin many years ago when we hired him to do a school-wide assembly. At the time I was amazed at his storytelling prowess and his ability to paint pictures from his mind's eye, drawing all of us into the world of his imagination. Since that initial assembly, Robin has come into my classroom numerous times to tell stories, talk about his life as a writer and engage my students in conversations about his books. When it became clear that we would be online this school year, Robin and I planned a Zoom appearance that would closely model the feel and excitement of his live visits. He brought the same enthusiasm to this setting and the kids are still eagerly reminiscing about Robin's visit. He is a master of his craft and I would highly recommend having Robin join any classroom, or wider school setting, for an engaging session for all ages.

Working with Robin Moore, as I have for the past twelve years, has always been a true pleasure, and his virtual storytelling sessions are nothing short of magical. Mr. Moore has a true talent for bringing history to life and making learning exciting for students of all ages.

Robin has been working with our school for many years, coming in to share stories, crafts, and traditions of the Lenape people with our students. His expertise fits perfectly with our unit on Native American people and is something we look forward to year after year. This year, we were unsure if Robin's visit would be possible due to the pandemic, but he was able to work with us on coordinating a virtual experience. When he shared his stories via Zoom, the students were just as engaged as they would have been if we heard them in person. He shared some of his handmade tools, crafts, and clothing as well, and the students were so excited to learn more about Robin's creating process. We would definitely recommend this virtual "field trip"!
