I've been on the board about a year and a half, and I have come to really appreciate and admire the resolve and commitment of the board, as well as the talent and dedication of our storytellers, to deliver impactful and transformative experiences in improving literacy and effective communication skills. This past summer, I observed one of our experienced storytellers working with 5-to-6-year-old children of mixed genders during a summer camp program in West Windsor, NJ. She effectively led the group, responding to a variety of different levels of attention and engagement. Her planned program was also well thought out to encourage participation -- not just passive listening to stories, but active engagement in sharing their feelings, stimulating their imagination, and encouraging them to contribute to the overall experience of the session. She always made sure that even the most shy in the group had an opportunity to participate. I am very proud of our organization and look forward to its continued growth and success!

I've been involved with Storytelling Arts for a decade. I am also a secondary school teacher. I've twice participated in summer institutes. What I've seen in classrooms -- those of our tellers and my own-- is that this is as close to a magical teaching/learning method as there is. I once watched a fourth grader -- one of those kids who never gets it right-- stand in front of his class and tell the story of Mulan with absolute confidence. I've seen teachers who were all but burnt out come back to life in the supportive, fun, intellectually exciting atmosphere of the summer institute. Storytelling Arts is, literally, a life saver.

Literacy is to success as breathing is to life. Too often we take literacy for granted. Imagine a tested, proven program that engages 100% of students and increases their effectiveness in paying attention, comprehension, recall and telling, and critical thinking. Storytelling Arts does all this. Imagine the child who rarely speaks and can now tell a story confidently. Imagine a program where students and teachers cry tears of joy as a result of unleashing their potential -- just in a few classroom visits! What would it be like if the greatness in each child was awakened so they could tap into their abilities and soar? This program is experiential, first-class and its results proven and sustainable. Thank you Storytelling Arts for the difference you make in the world.
