Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 5 stars  

I was an affiliated artist with SAI from its inception until earlier this year when I resigned from the roster for family reasons. The storytellers are serious, dedicated and talented teaching artists who can reach sometimes "unreachable" students. The art of storytelling they bring to the front lines in our public schools and other venues lights up minds and hearts and clears the way for possibility.

Storytelling Arts, Inc. is a wonderful company with fabulous expertise in telling stories. The children have an experience like no other! I have seen extraordinary benefits in students who participate in their programs. Ask a child what they ate for lunch yesterday and you'll get a very limited response. Ask them to retell the story they heard 6 months ago from this agency and you'll be blown away with the details! - Lauren Ralicki, Reading Specialist, LDTC
