As a former adult continuing ed instructor, Sherrilyn is a staunch supporter of education, as is her assistant Kim who is a former special needs and middle school literature teacher, and a Teacher Of The Year award recipient. This section was created to help teachers wishing to add the Chronicles of Nick series to their curriculum. If you have any questions or would like to book Sherrilyn to speak to your class or at your school, please contact Kim. While Sherri’s schedule is packed, she will do whatever she can to work out an appearance with schools. Sherri doesn’t charge for appearances.

Sherri is able to speak on several key issues facing students. And if you’d like to read about some of her personal stories, please click here.

We’ve also provided Discussion Guides, Lesson Plans, Teacher Prep Guides, Worksheets and Labs for your use. **Please note that the Discussion Guides will all contain spoilers for anyone who hasn’t read the book. If you have questions regarding those, please contact Kim who is a licensed middle school literature teacher.

If you are a teacher who lives and works in the US and would like copies of the CON books to review, please email
academic@macmillan.com. Please specify which of the Chronicles of Nick book you’re interested in. The Macmillan Academic division will be more than happy to help.

Below we have the files for our Anti-Bully and Reading is Fun posters that we make available for schools free of charge. Please feel free to download the files and use in your school or library as you need them. If you’re having trouble getting them to print, please contact John Karle. He will be more than happy to send some out to you. Please include your job title, school name, and the address where you want items sent.
