PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT, TRAINING, Stories AND KEYNOTES
"Thank you! It was amazing! The content was exactly right and the tone (warmth, humor, reflectiveness about ourselves and others, and the arts) carried on throughout the day in exactly the way I hoped. And I really think the focus on storytelling techniques will carry into our “pitch” work beautifully. I’ll be smiling at the Mr. L story for some time!"
-participant, Lincoln Center Education
How do stories help us connect to each other and to students? How do they change the way we listen and make meaning? What makes a story work, anyway?
My doctoral research at New York University focused on personal narrative performance and teacher identity. I've presented these strategies and findings (and told stories) at the Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale, SXSWEDU, Lincoln Center Institute, Columbia University's Reading and Writing Project, NYC Arts in Education Roundtable, School of Visual Arts, Penn State School of Education, and many others.
If you would like to have me speak to your group or organization about my research and experience in storytelling, or to tell stories, please get in touch.
