My students are wonderful and have so much potential to grow and become fantastic citizens of the world. Our school is a community school in Danbury, CT. Our students are resilient and consistently impacted by life concerns that no child should have to endure such as parental deportation, poverty, abuse and neglect, and hunger. Even with adversity, our kids come to school every day with smiles on their faces and the sense of security and safety.
My students need to experience Storytelling in a distinct social and cultural experience that will enhance literacy skills.
My goal is to provide students with a unique presentation on multicultural storytelling to reinforce writing and literacy. The students will get to be part of an audience with a renowned storyteller who will demonstrate a link between oracy and literacy.
