Meet Ms. Jean

It begins with a story...


Once upon a time, not so long ago, there was a librarian named Ms. Jean. She loved sharing stories and decided to create a storytime for children who came into the library. Parents and teachers began bringing many kids to Ms. Jean's storytime and she loved it when they listened, laughed, and even clapped along!  Ms. Jean knew this would forever be an important part of her life.


Upon retirement, Ms. Jean was determined to perfect her storytelling skills and began attending classes, workshops, conferences, and one-on-one coaching. She was hooked!


In 1998, Ms. Jean formed the Wichita Griots Storytelling Institute, and now we complete the rest of the story!
