Doak House Museum brings storyteller to Doak Elementary School

Posted on 19 October 2012 by eestes@tusculum.edu

Students at Doak Elementary School enjoyed tales from professional storyteller Regi Carpenter on October 19 as the result of a partnership between the Doak House Museum and the International Storytelling Center in Jonesborough. The students were part of each story as Carpenter had them sing or say words of different characters or do motions to illustrate the narrative. Since 1996, Carpenter has been a professional storyteller, singer, writer and educator traveling throughout the country to perform and teach at libraries, museums, schools, festivals, conferences and private events. As part of its continuing mission to provide free and low-cost educational opportunities for regional school children, the Doak House Museum has built a successful partnership with the Jonesborough Storytelling Center and Greene County Schools. The program has been in place since 2004.
