Bio1 Like %I am a native Chicagoan living in the desert sun land of El Paso, Texas. I recently decided to pursue storytelling and writing full-time after putting these two loves on hold while raising my family and working as a dual language teacher.<br />
I was first introduced to this humble profession through the Golden Apple Foundation but got hooked by observing and learning from one of the greatest storytellers Chicago has ever produced, the late Syd Lieberman. Most of the stories I tell are original stories that are inspired by my grandmothers' varied and entertaining tales from their childhoods in Mexico. <br />
As a teacher, I implemented storytelling into my students> academic curriculum whenever possible. I found it served as an intervention for my struggling readers and assisted them in improving their self-confidence and even their academic achievement. I firmly believe storytelling is an educational tool that brings back the active learning that is missing in today's educational curriculum.<br />
My students have always been my best critics. I figure, if they like my storytelling, others will as well.%
