2 “Everything begins with a story.” -- Joseph Campbell, American mythologist, writer and lecturer

3 What I’ve Learned: You will feel lost. You need to laugh. You must be honest. There are no normal kids. Teachers are humble.

4 Stories are a critical element of any effective communications program. Stories are the fundamental building block of communication. Stories are authentic human experiences that connect us. Stories create emotion and are remembered.
