About Me

Barbara Techel is the author of the multi-award winning Frankie, the Walk ‘N Roll Dog book series. When her dachshund, Frankie, suffered a spinal injury, Barbara had her custom-fitted for a wheelchair. Frankie persevered, and Barbara realized the beautiful opportunity she had to share Frankie and give others hope and inspiration to be the best they can be. Along with sharing Frankie’s story with children, Barbara and Frankie routinely volunteer as a therapy dog team at a local hospital, senior assisted facility, and hospice community, spreading joy wherever they go.

Coming Soon!! Virtual Classroom Visits with Frankie, the Walk 'N Roll Dog!

Ok, so I don't know alot about technology, but my mom tells me that we will soon be offering Skype presentations to schools! Wow, can you believe it? It is the newest, and up to date way of bringing an author (and rolling dog!) into your classroom! So be sure to tell your teachers you want to see me, the rolling dog, on the overhead screen or Smartboard in your classroom. It will be so much fun to meet new kids across the country and share my message of hope and inspiration!
Click here to read what Karen Keys, District Media Specialist for school in Canada, had to say about our pilot Skype session with her students.

So be sure and stay tuned to my blog for our big launch or sign up for my updates on our website! Arf-a-roo! Can't wait to meet all of you soon!!

Thanks, Stephanie! Maybe it could be something we could offer your children as well. I would love to work with unschool kids, as well! Let me know if this would be something of interest to you and other unschool families. I have an unschool family in my neighborhood and they are the BEST kids ever! My husband and I always comment on what a great family they are.
