I love October...the crunchy leaves, the chilly nights...and the drama and imagination of Halloween.

The administration has given a green light to develop a storytelling course to be offered to the community and that can also be taken (with additional activity and costs) as an elective by students.
I would love to hear recommendations for 'textbooks', great resources, online video samplings, and anything else.

I know there is a lot of talk at this time of the year about people being afraid to offfend by wishing people a "Merry [fill in the blanks]" or a "Happy [fill in the blank]" - but seriously who can be offended when someone wants to share a smile, or a helping hand or a positive thought?

A message that says, "Hey, at this time of the year I enjoy a special belief that has all of these good things attached to it; like love, hope, concern,… Continue

OKLAHOMA TELLERS :
"Sometimes people decide, "Hey, let's get somebody to tell stories!" They often have no clue as to what is needed in presenting a quality storytelling experience.
