5 Best Teaching Moments: You Don’t Have To Be Scared

5 Best Teaching Moments: I’ll be posting one every day this week. Number one!

I’m running a Storytelling Workshop at an elementary school. I end with: “Here’s something you guys don’t know: I’m incredibly shy. I’m scared of talking to groups of strangers. But I am REALLY good at faking it, and you can do it too.” An eleven year old boy raises his hand.

“Miss?” he says, “Miss, you don’t have to be scared of me.”

(Then I die of crying.)

Want to be part of the fun? You can. I’m running a 90 minute Storytelling Drop In on May 11 – click here to join!
