Artists-Unlimited is a family business created to share and market the talents of Regina G. Burch who was a classroom teacher for 30 years and has been selected by two different school staffs as Teacher of the Year. Husband Michael, and their two sons, both military veterans, assist and utilize their computer skills to turn Regina's music compositions, photography, and writings into marketable products.
Regina has received numerous educational grants to enrich and explore multiculturalism, puppetry, and literacy. She has written articles for international news organizations and magazines on a variety of topics. Regina researched and wrote Love Is All You Need, a novel about The Beatles following a media assignment to Great Britain during which she interviewed Paul McCartney. She has interviewed many people in The Beatles' world including Astrid Kirshher, Walter Shenson, and numerous others. She was a guest speaker at Beatlefest six times, serving on round table panels concerning facts about The Beatles' music as well as sharing facts gleaned in preparation for her novel.
Primary focus for Regina's writing recently has been character education after working as a teacher trainer for developmental education. There were very few appropriate character education resources to meet the needs of her classroom character education program, so Regina wrote 12 Character Readers, read-along / sing-along books with a separately sold CD. The series was published in 2002 by Creative Teaching Press. Regina wrote a Teacher/Parent Resource Guide to accompany the Character Readers, all of which focus on courage, compassion, honesty, sharing, friendship, cooperation, respect, perseverance, self-discipline, and responsibility. Artists-Unlimited published Good Manners for Kids of All Ages, a read-along / sing-along book and CD in 2010 that gives guidance about 12 different manners from respecting someone's space to using the telephone. Regina's latest book, My Daddy Has PTSD, published by CreateSpace in 2014, is designed to help children in military families who are dealing with parental PTSD symptoms. Regina, her husband, and sons believe that people need to reach out to help military families because dealing with PTSD is a problem for all Americans to solve.
Regina is currently doing workshops to share many activities to compact the curriculum so that more skills can be taught in less time. Her children's books can be used to teach reading skills and many other subjects simultaneously. You can contact her to discuss a workshop designed for your needs at artists-unlimited.nc.rr.com and on Twitter @ReginaGBurch.
