Lead facilitators for Storychaser workshops are experienced, certified classroom teachers and/or university faculty with extensive experiences both leading and designing effective adult professional development with technology tools. The facilitator who leads your workshop will depend upon scheduling and availability. At the time you request a workshop, you can request a specific workshop leader.
Here are short bios of our primary workshop leaders.
