In-classroom & Residencies

In-classroom visits

In-classroom visits bring the power of storytelling right into your classroom, getting students actively involved in the storytelling and story making process.

My classroom visits bring curriculum content to life! I tell folktales from all around the world that tie into whatever it is that you are studying in class, be it science, math, literacy or social emotional learning.

 

The stories are highly interactive, calling your students to become actively involved in the story while digging into and becoming excited aboutcurriculum content!

I also visit classrooms to facilitate creative writing through storytelling workshops, public speaking workshops, and add some sparkle to fairy tale units!

Residency Programs:
Multiple storytelling visits throughout the year that tie into a curriculum focus or particular classroom focus or need.

A storytelling residency is a series of story performances and workshops held in one location over a set period of time that have a goal, theme, or objective determined by the school or organization.

 

A storytelling residency can center on traditional tales, personal narrative, or historic stories and can include or combine story-crafting, storytelling, and story-listening.

 

Through multiple opportunities to come together around story, participants in a storytelling residency are able to dive deep into the creative process to discover their voice, the voice of others, and the voices of the stories that make up our histories, our cultures, and our world.
