TEACHING ARTIST STATEMENT and BIO
With every word and gesture, the storyteller reveres the ancient art. She understands that listeners are as eager to add their own movements and sounds as they are to plunge into the world the story creates. She invites her listeners into the story and revels in their enchantment.
Stories enlarge perspectives, personalize history, build vocabulary, spark curiosity, celebrate teamwork, teach empathy and empower both teller and listener to inhabit endless possibilities.
