For Teachers, Librarians and Homeschoolers

Welcome! I’m honored that so many teachers, librarians and homeschool educators are making use of the HenCam. Here’s a page that might be of use. I’ve put down some ideas about how to use Tillie Lays an Egg and my web sites in the curriculum. Let me know if you have something to add.

I do library story times and classroom visits. As you can see, sometimes I bring Tillie!

I live about 30 miles west of Boston. Contact me if you’d like more information about these programs. At this time I don’t do skype or video conferences. However, I’m happy to answer email questions from your students. (Please put up to ten questions in one email from the classroom’s address -don’t have the individual students email.)

If you are reading Tillie Lays an Egg in the classroom, I’ll put a hello! notice on the HenCam homepage. I used to hang a sign in front of the camera, but Candy liked to play with them, and she shredded several messages (including the plastic sleeves!)

Here in New England, the start of school coincided with a dramatic change in the weather. One day it was wiltingly humid and hot, and the next, when the school buses rolled down the street, it was crisp and we all put on sweaters. I hope that the beginning of your school year is as invigorating for you.


  1. Terry! Thank you! This is fabulous! I always use ‘Tillie” in the spring and do a unit on eggs and chickens….the kids love it, even the big ones! Since 75% of the kids (and some big people too) don’t have a clue where food comes from, you help us educate people on this part of our culture that seems to have gone by the wayside. Thanks again for all you do!
