Program Topics and Presenters

A. Heather L. Montgomery  writes for kids who are wild about animals. The weirder, the wackier, the better. An award-winning science educator, Heather uses yuck appeal to engage young minds. She has a B.S. in biology and an M.S. in environmental education and has published over a dozen nonfiction books including How Rude: Real Bugs Who Won’t Mind Their Manners (Scholastic), Unsolved Mysteries of Nature (Capstone), Bugs Don’t Hug (Charlesbridge), and the upcoming Something Rotten: A Fresh Look at Roadkill (Bloomsbury).

Inquiry is her life.


B. Tom Brandon has been in the field of education for over thirty years teaching in Oklahoma and Alabama. Most of those years have been at the same small rural school located in Madison County, Alabama. He has served in several capacities from teacher, coach, to bus driver and has served on a number of advisory councils over the years. Mr. Brandon has received Teacher of the Year at his local school, The Coca Cola Always Teaching Award and the Steve Harvey Neighborhood Award. He is a blogger, author and speaker. He travels internationally speaking, teaching and doing community work. But his greatest joy comes from family, especially his three grand-children.
