STORYTELLING INTERESTS

I grew up the quiet one in a large family. My eldest brother was always the one to tell stories that made us laugh. Storytelling didnít really come into my life until my children were born and I decided to become a media specialist. I have been the storyteller for the Livonia Public Schools' Young Authors Conference for the past two years and love the challenge of telling stories to students. I am occasionally involved with the Detroit Storytelling League and would like to become more active in this fine organization as soon as time permits.
