Summary:

More than 70 public, private and parochial school teachers will learn how to help their students improve their reading skills through the art of storytelling at the Spring Reading Conference on Saturday at Pearl B. Larsen Elementary School.

Brett Dillingham, a professional storyteller, will give the keynote address during the conference Saturday and share with educators how storytelling can improve reading, writing, speaking, listening and language skills among students. The conference is hosted by the St. Croix Council of the International Reading Association.

In addition to teaching students how to write, read and perform their stories, Dillingham encourages the students to practice good manners and respect by listening attentively to each other's stories.
