Hey Norah, thanks for the heads up on that. You sound busy! I have no doubt that storytelling will become integrated into your teaching, no chance of it falling to the side.
Things are going well here, winter programmes in schools starting up, and a project with refugees hopefully in the Spring. I will look into that tellers in residence programme, sounds great! I am playing the Globe Theatre this Saturday in London, as presented by the Crick Crack Club so am really looking forward to that (Tales for Winter Series).
Aside from that I am ticking along as they say here, and my brain as ever burning with ideas for new projects! Great to get in touch, talk soon!
In word and deed
What's that stuff being splashed on your face? I was moved by your piece Dead Serious. I shared it with my colleagues at the KUNM radio station and a friend who was politically active during the 60's and still is. He hosts a show on one of our public community networks. I hope you get feedback from my friends.
I wish you well. Thanks for sharing.
thank you for your nice comment on my stories;)
i am indeed passionate...
and would love to hear your voice
happy to share :)

Thanks, Laura. I love how this networking stuff works -
so serendipitous. Just amazing.
By the way there is a young teacher from Manhattan on this site - Mary Ann Schmidt -I gave her your name.
Ciao Nora! please stay in touch! so much to share about all this! I am working right now on a curriculum that will start as a pilot in October in NY schools, combining personal narrative, digital storytelling and digital/visual literacy. Let's talk! (and thanks for checking out my blog... I will try to share more about all I this there).
Hello, Norah! I mainly do my Digital Storytelling workshops in foster care agencies (usually the youth live in group homes), suspension schools, and wherever they call me. I am based in New York but travel very often. I love this format!
so good to hear from you!
I'm originally form Genoa, where my mum's family is from and from my dad's side from Naples!So we really have something in common!Where are you from exacly in thre U.S.A? Who knows...may be when I next come across trhe ocean we can meet!
I would be very interested in knowing the stories of your granparents form Genoa and about their immigration...as I grew up in Genoa and last year a Cultural Association form there asked me to do a research about immigration stories...! What a pity I didn't know you at the time!
Anyway I would be very interesting in knowing them even now.
I leave you also our websites, where you'll find an English section:
Keep in touch and go on being proud of your origins, I think it's always good to know one's own unique story...
All the best!
Ma'am,I am indeed privileged that you saw my blog and found it interesting enough to leave a message for me. I have just started my journey with story telling. I hope to learn a lot from people like you and others on this network.
