SHAWNE NICOLE BRIGGS
As a certified "Army Brat", I've always considered myself a worldly person. I lived In Georgia, Texas, Kentucky, Maryland and Panama. When I was an undergraduate student, I spend time in Italy, Vatican City, France, Spain, Monaco, Switzerland, The Netherlands and Greece. Traveling gave a chance to experience other cultures and appreciate the difficulties of adjusting to a culture different from my own. This appreciation for various cultures has helped me tremendously as an ESL (English as a Second Language) and Advanced Academics teacher, since I deal with many students from various cultures.

I feel I've
always been a storyteller. From my wild explanations on how it wasn't my
fault I broke something as a child to swapping "war stories" as a classroom
teacher, telling stories is so natural. When I took Storytelling
last semester, it was the first time I found myself in an environment that
nurtured and encouraged me to tell stories beyond that usual expressive book
readings. I like to tell repetition stories and pourquoi stories.
