“We had the great privilege of having Shelly Boyum-Breen visit our elementary school and speak to our high school girls.  Her message of perseverance and hard work as told through her stories about Shelly Bean the Sports Queen was very well received.  Our students were engaged in the conversations and Shelly's ability to relate to students from all walks of life was apparent.  Shelly is a gifted presenter with a wonderful story to tell.  The connection she made for our students was meaningful.  Shelly's flexibility in working with our schedule and doing two very different presentations was appreciated and she handled it flawlessly.  I strongly recommend districts take advantage of the message from Shelly Bean the Sports Queen.”Dave Endicott, Superintendent, Pine River-Backus, MN School District

"My students and staff loved having Shelly visit with us this week.  I have heard nothing but glowing reports from everyone.  Students stayed engaged and really connected to her personal stories about the lessons she has learned from playing sports.  So many of them could relate and had stories of their own that they wanted to share.  While the books themselves are geared more for younger students, the 4th-6th grade students really got a lot out of the presentation too." Nicole Herron, Media Specialist, Kerr Elem, Allen, TX

"Having Shelly visit our school was a great experience for both girls and boys! Shelly is able to connect with kids and deliver a powerful message that is important for all kids to hear."  Molly Thomas, Intervention Specialist, Red Oak Elementary, MN

"Shelly entertained all of our students with her wonderful storytelling of perseverance. She mixes her own personal stories with Shelly Bean's to keep kids of all ages engaged. The books have been popular both as stories and for the sports skills instructions included." Joan Magnuson, Media Specialist, Brooklyn Center, MN
