Dear Educators, Parents & Friends,


Once upon a time, we shared bonded and taught through storytelling.  Engaging and educating children full-time with stories has been my passion for over thirty years.  Now, with all things social postponed until the danger of catching Covid-19 subsides, I’m offering for your school community, live online well-told tales with curricular based learning activities.


I am prepared to help teachers meet educational goals with live online storytelling story-making. Based on successful programs given at hundreds of schools over the years, please join us on ZOOM for an enchanting educational storytelling experience.  Ask for a program tailored to your students, interests and curriculum.
