Danny the Dragon Supports Deaf Literacy

     A passionate literacy advocate, I was alarmed by the literacy statistic among the deaf, and now I’ve begun raising support for education for deaf children. Upon the release of my Danny the Dragon DREAMS, the proceeds of my Danny the Dragon DVD, which features a signed reading of the book for deaf children, will be donated to the local deaf children’s school, Blossom’s Montessori School for the Deaf in Clearwater, Florida. I’m  very happy that I’m able to do something to improve deaf education!

Danny the Dragon Author Visits Blossom Montessori School for the Deaf

I recently visited the Blossom Montessori School for the Deaf and had a wonderful meeting with Julie Rutenberg.  What an amazing woman!  Despite not having children of her own, she created 1  of 2 Montessori schools in the United States that services deaf children,children from deaf parents or deaf siblings.  The school is currently closed to others that don’t fit into the above demographic, however next year they will be opening to the general public.   In the meantime, much needs to be done to create public awareness about the school.  Stay tuned for more information on this as well as an upcoming Danny the Dragon reading that I will be doing.
