Find a Storyteller - Sandra Aguirre-Magana
I was first introduced to this humble profession through the Golden Apple Foundation. However, I 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 inspired by my grandmothers' varied and entertaining tales from their childhoods in Mexico.
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 missing in today's educational curriculum.
My students have always been my best critics. I figure if they like my storytelling, others will as well.
