Life long learning at its best!! We keep learning and that is a good thing!

K Sheffield

I so agree with you, Stephanie! That wonderful supportive atmosphere in classes is something I've rarely experiences elsewhere, and keeps me coming back. I'm also inspired by the talent, courage, and trust I find in my classmates and their stories. Truly terrific!

Kathy Nakagawa

Your closing question is the perfect one for storytelling. It's sometimes really hard for me to be open to learning new (creative) things! It's much easier to stay in my usual lane of appreciating the stories others tell. But, I agree that this class is the perfect supportive environment in which to stretch my creative muscles and try something new.

Your story about a haircut was inspiring! To know how interested I was in something that might be considered an everyday event helped me think of new stories that had never occurred to me. Thank you!

Lori Gonzalez

You have shown how we can craft our stories from real life experiences. You drew us in, and kept us engaged, in a genuine way. You're right about the class. The level of care and support is amazing. Keep going in your quest to be a lifelong learner!

Debbie Rowe

Stephanie, I absolutely loved your haircut story. It was genius the way you constructed it, and it definitely inspired me to look closer at the small things in life!

Marian Giannatti

Personal storytelling has been inspirational this semester. I'm so glad I got to hear your stories. Each of them was beautifully crafted and touched upon something to which everyone could relate. You have a talent for telling, even the most simple of life experiences; you find the meaning that is rich and complex - please keep telling!
