Students will hear professionally performed stories, participate in the storytelling process, and engage in activities to highlight and promote the understanding of scope and sequence. Please note that I am telling (performing) the story, rather than reading a book, though, when possible I have sited below the source material. This class is highly interactive and promotes students to be active participants. Week 1 students will hear The Little Old Lady Who Wasn’t Afraid of Anything, written...

I have been an educator and storyteller for almost thirty years. I taught in the public school system for ten years, two of which were spent as a media specialist. I homeschooled my daughter through the eighth grade and during that time provided a Waldorf-style preschool at my home. I was a teaching artist for Penland School of Crafts for ten years going into all of the elementary schools in Mitchell County, NC and providing Effective Teacher Training for the other teaching artists. I have taught all ages from preschool through adult. I have also been a professional storyteller for almost twenty years and have performed at a wide variety of schools, libraries, festivals, and private functions. I bring all of my experience to my online teaching and always strive to provide the best experience possible for students. The stories I have selected have all been used in a variety of educational and entertainment settings and have been enjoyed without controversy. Though I haven't seen any complications with the stories I will be using for this class, I understand some children can feel unsettled by story events and may feel strongly about ideas presented. It is my practice to tune into students and make adjustments as needed, to gently guide discussions, being respectful of individual feelings and ideas, and, to the best of my abilities, make sure all students feel heard and have a positive experience.
