School Information

Storytelling and the oral tradition are the grandparents of the literature and the entertainment we enjoy today. Storytelling fulfills the preservation of traditions, cultures, and values that thrived before written and electronic communication. Our region hosts the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough and is known worldwide as a cradle of the art of Storytelling.

Schools can host a program for the entire student population, or for individual classrooms. In addition to this, sometimes members have particular stories which may fit a school theme or current unit of study. Our desire is to make your TaleTellers experience the best it can be and we want to be used as a teaching tool. From time to time, our students offer residencies in storytelling, or other curriculum needs. The opportunities are endless, so for more information today.
