I was selected to be a Fund For Teachers Fellow for 2015. My project will take me to Northern Europe to research storytelling and fairy tales. While in Germany, I will travel down the Fairy Tale Road. In Edinburgh, I'll be taking workshops at their Storytelling Centre. Finally, in Iceland I will be looking into their beliefs on elves and trolls. I plan to interview people along the way to better understand the reasons folklore resonates with us. This research will hopefully lead to a school wide storytelling day/event next school year.
