I LOVE reading! and reading to others, especially children. As a Principal and educator of 50+ years, I always read in my classroom; as Tutor, volunteer teacher around the world and as a Principal to small and large groups of students at a time. Additionally, I was trained via classes at the Los Angeles Music Center on story telling methods. My love for reading began as a little girl, one who always had a book in her hand and even read under the covers at night when the lights were supposed to be out. 

I LOVE reading and I'll help instill that love in your learner.
-Learners may practice their storytelling skills that they learned in class by retelling the story to their parents, siblings, grandparents or friend/s
Each learner brings to class: • drawing paper • pencil or colored pencils • good behavior and attention • excitement and imagination
Self-assessment based on how the learner feels s/he participated in class and is able to retell each story in their own words.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
