Arlene is on the SCENE

Arlene still visiting schools!

Posted on: May 15, 2011

This has been a powerful school year.  Arlene has proven herself to be a great discussion-starter!  By exploring the book’s themes we jump start conversations about disability, the concept of embracing who you are, and the idea of appreciating, not just accepting, the differences among us.  And of course, everyone we meet now knows what Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and why we need to join together to spread CMT awareness.

We’ve hit over twenty schools this year, from Maryland to Massachusetts, the big cities of New York and Philadelphia to the small towns of southern Rhode Island.  Our travels were chronicled most recently by New York Newsday!

We love seeing Arlene posing on bulletin boards everywhere.  If you have an interest in a free presentation at your school next year, contact us here or email: carol @ hnf-cure.org.

Arlene On the Scene a class favorite!

Dear Mrs. Liu,

Thank you so much for visiting our school and classroom! We really enjoyed reading the book and can’t wait for a sequel (hint, hint)! We learned so much about both embracing differences and the disease CMT. Good luck on your future travels and hope to see you again next year!

Love,

209

You all were so great–loved meeting you! You can count on me visiting again next year!
