Oh, thank you so much! The kids and I had great fun... We have two boys from Mexico who will participate in the play, but they speak no English. It was sweet feeling the excitement in the air of the classroom today as they began to practice. We laughed a lot! It's just great Thanks. In appreciation,
Stanwood Middle School Stanwood, WA (north of Seattle).
My kids are reading your play in my class now as part of our 7th grade English Language ARts curriculum, and they enjoy the humor and how closely it matches the Dickens story. I'm learning a lot of Spanish too! I plan on showing A Christmas Carol movie next week, and having the kids write comparative essays on the two versions.

Hello, my name is _______. I am a Jr. High Drama teacher in Arvin, CA. I was just going crazy looking for a play script that would be appropriate for my 7th graders. Your script is perfect. We have a 75% Hispanic population here and all of the drama students are of Mexican heritage. I read some of the play to the students from the internet and they cannot wait to get into production. I am so grateful that this play is out there. Thank you,

I am a drama teacher in Florida. We are reading your play in class, and we LOVE it! Very funny, a great new twist on the Dickens classic! Thanks,
Cocoa High School, Drama/English Dept.
As the conclusion, we did it well... the production this year was different with your "Coyote's Christmas Carol" that we all had positive attitude towards the production... We made one man play all the roles that other spirits did... As the result, I, playing the part of Scrooge, won the best actor prize in the contest. I cried during the play and mainly focused on the theme...

I've had the pleasure of reviewing your play "Coyote's Christmas Carol' and although I haven't completed reading it yet I really appreciate the interpretation and the theme you have applied to the play. I'd be interested in producing the play as a project for our drama club... Thanks and best regards,

Hey there! I am hoping that you have this great piece of work available in Spanish for my Spanish speaking students. I've looked online and haven't been able to find it. Is there place I can get it? Appreciatively,
Lincoln Middle School, St Louis
I teach Spanish to 8th graders. Our Reading and Language Arts teacher stumbled upon your script "Coyote Christmas Carol" on the internet when looking for info. on the Dickens' classic to use in her classroom ... It is a wonderful medium for teaching the traditions and lessons of the Mexican culture and the Christmas season. Muchas gracias,
I teach at Polk Middle School in Albuquerque, and we are encouraged to teach culturally relevant literature to our predominantly Spanish-speaking students. I wanted to teach Dickens' Christmas Carol, but I think your version is so much cuter, not to mention very relevant to our kids' culture!

...I am teaching at an International School in Auckland/New Zealand... Now we are planning to put something else on for our Christmas celebration. The Students suggested the Christmas Carol... I found your idea with the cultural background very appropriate for an International School as our students are coming from many different countries in the world. Thanks again for the friendly offer; I am hoping of hearing of you very soon, Warmest regards.

I just read the first page of your show and would like to get a copy of the script. I have been teaching theatre for 18 years and am currently at Dumont High School in New Jersey. I always try to do different things with the advanced class and this looks like something they would enjoy

My kids loved Coyote's Christmas Carol! We read it as a class, but didn't perform it. They had a lot of fun reading something culturally relevant, and they educated ME on a lot of stuff too! We had a great time learning together. I'm going to pass it on to our after school drama teacher to see if she wants to think about doing it next year!

I just wanted to let you know that the kids loved reading this play! ... Thank you very much for allowing me to use your play in my classroom. It was very useful in teaching about Mexican culture and customs at this time of year.

it went well -i used it to develop character traits and how a character can change from the beginning of the story to the end as always wish their had been more time to fully develop the creative possibilities thanks, thank you for remembering me and for sharing your wonderful play with me. It's definitely top-shelf Christmas fare.

I am an 8th grade teacher at Athens Middle School in Athens, Illinois. The students read the play the last few days before Christmas break. We did not actually perform it; however, students did take on different roles. The students really enjoyed it. It was refreshing and a break from tradition. Thank you for sharing your play with us!!!

I am an ESL teacher in Shanghai, China. I have one optional class where I can teach English outside the thinking box of Chinese headmasters. I saw your script and found it very interesting. Wish you a prosperous and happy life.
I am very interested in this play... Our school has grown very fast the past decade and is now over 50 percent hispanic and I am in need of material to get these Hispanic students excited and involved.
