Telling stories and making history come alive is the passion that Mrs. Janet Longenecker has had for many years. She is the history storyteller because history is "His" story. Several years ago, while reading "The Patchwork Path" to her daughter's 3rd grad class, she realized that this story could be a phenomenal teaching tool, with the children participating in the Underground Railroad quilt making. This story has become her signature story, and is LOVED by all who hear it. From this, she has created a Mayflower story, and her favorite Biblical story is "Mary& Joseph - a love story" where she ties in the Menorah with these two love birds of Jewish faith.
Her silly side has a part too, and many children have benefited from these tales. She also dances with the children, teaching basic ballet, jazz and hip hop. She is versatile and has God-given talents sure to bring laughs and insight into your child's storytelling experience.
The program will be available for ages 5 through 12. The cost will be $30 for the first child and $25 for the second, third, etc. This cost is for both Thursday, June 19th and Friday, June 20th. Space is limited so be sure to register early to ensure a spot! You can register your children for these classes on the convention registration form.
Janet was scheduled to lead the program in 2013 but had to cancel so we are very excited that she will be with us in 2014!
