Drawing on his experiences as a classroom teacher, author, storyteller, traveler, father of four, and student of life - and with over 35 hours worth of stories in his repertoire - Michael R. Kasony-O'Malley offers a variety of storytelling performances & programs, including school-wide assembly performances, family night programs, classroom workshops, professional development seminars, and one-week & two-week residencies.
The Irish poet W. B. Yeats said, 'Education is not filling a bucket, but lighting a fire.' In all of his programs, Michael lights that fire - creating an excitement about books, stories, reading, writing, and much, much more.
