Time Traveling Woman

Time-Traveling Woman will come to your assembly or class and answer questions and discuss what her visit to the future was like.

Every time she visits the future it becomes better or worse, due to elementary school children who decide to change it. (At least two weeks before Time Traveling Woman's visit, each student writes about half a page about what they would like to do to help the world when they grow up. In her reports from the future, Time Traveling Woman incorporates what the students wrote.)

Time-Traveling Woman will talk about how the future can be changed and encourage children to do so.

Time-Traveling Woman is also available to describe her visit to one or more historical time periods that your class is studying. (For example, she has visited the American Revolution and come back to report on the actions of Deborah Sampson.

Singing in nursing homes

Original stories and songs for children and families

“Your voice is beautiful. A breath of fresh air. I’ve never seen my son focus so beautifully. He so totally responded to you.”—The mother of an autistic boy

"Uplifting Stories" open mic events

Sally will come to your facility and lead a story-sharing event. Focusing on Uplifting Stories and sparked by Sally's welcoming enthusiasm, your group will find themselves sharing storytelling abilities they didn't even know they had.

"In helping Sally produce the "Uplifting Hearts Open Mike" for over three years, I have watched her take the threat out of public speaking for so many people, supportively encouraging them to participate, valuing their efforts and giving them very good feedback, as well as making people understand thatlistening is as important to any good event as performing. Thus a community atmosphere is created in which every person listens to and respects each individual who gets up."—Susan Melzter, Boston Connection Conference Center.

"The events that Sally led were wonderful...truly uplifting."—Robert Luckey, Boston, MA
