2015 - Fund for Teachers Fellow
I was selected to be a Fund For Teachers Fellow for 2015. My project took me to Northern Europe to research storytelling and fairy tales. While in Germany, I traveled the Fairy Tale Road from Frankfurt up to Hamburg. In Edinburgh, I took workshops at their Storytelling Centre as well as met and heard traditional Scottish Storytellers. Finally, in Iceland I looked into their beliefs on elves and trolls via tours of their country side. I interviewed people along the way to better understand the reasons folklore resonates with us. This research lead to an after school storytelling club the following year.
