Although she hasn’t been teaching for quite as long as our local PBS station has been on the air, Mrs. Shernae Storella has logged more than a decade of leading a classroom of young charges at Redeemer Classical School. She knows first-hand the power of stories and how they provide an effective tool for instruction. As a matter of course, she’s composed songs and sayings and short tales to teach her students about kindness, respect, hard work and the fruit of the Spirit.
For years, she’s dreamed of writing and illustrating her own book that parents and teachers could use to guide and inspire their own children and students. In March 2016, Mrs. Storella achieved her ambition when her first book You Are Not From Here, Now Go Home! became published. Since that time, she’s seen two more books, The Frowning Frog and Who Awakened The Sleeping Giant?, published.
This Saturday, September 8, Mrs. Storella will take part in the WVPT Birthday Party to be held at Lucy F. Simms Continuing Education Center. She will read her latest book, Who Awakened The Sleeping Giant? beginning at 12:55 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
