Are you a performer of story or listener, both, other? Tell us a bit about yourself...
I have been an educator of young children for more than 25 years so I am no stranger to telling stories. Only most of those stories were written by other people like Maurice Sendak, Shel Silverstein and Mark Alan Stamaty. Preschoolers thru 6th graders all sitting criss-cross applesauce, with their faces looking up at me, waiting to hear the next rhyme or poem or cliffhanger of a story. It is always nice to get the full attention of a group and watch them become enthralled with the imaginations of the author. When I attend the monthly Massmouth story slams at Doyle's in Jamaica Plain, I see the same kinds of looks on faces in the audience as I would at circle time. Except at Doyle's we are all drinking beer, eating pizza and onion rings and sitting in a bar watching the performers up on the stage! It's wonderful! If the audience wasn't so supportive and caring, I would never have gotten up on the stage to tell any of my stories...Thank you Massmouth! I am a teller, a listener and a volunteer..PS: Th
