LIVINGSTON, NJ - For the 11th year in a row, husband and wife Professional Storytellers Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss, a.k.a Beauty and the Beast Storytellers, completed the Artists in Residence program at Harrison School. The couple comes each year to spin yarns and encourage even the most reluctant sharers to tell tales of their own.

After performing for all students and staff on Monday, March 24, the Hamiltons worked with third graders throughout the week, assisted by staff members Mrs. Fischer, Miss Sorrentino, Mrs. Sachs, Mrs. Matienzo, Mrs. DeMarsico, Miss Kwai and Mrs. Cullen. 

Students then presented to their parents at a Storytelling Festival on Friday, March 28.

According to the website, “Once again, the students astounded the adult listeners with their poise, enthusiasm, and knack for turning a phrase.  Learning folk literature and public speaking are two integral components of the Common Core State Standards, so while the students were having fun they were learning many important skills.
