Julie Della Tore has been telling traditional and literary fairy tales to audiences of all ages since 1985. Her nine years as an elementary school teacher and her study of child development and curriculum have made Julie finely attuned to stories that are age appropriate. She seeks out those myths and folktales which are filled with ethical dilemmas, providing a catalyst for deep discussion and reflection.
As a freelance storyteller in the Metropolitan area Julie has performed at the Hans Christian Andersen Statue in Central Park, libraries, and numerous festivals. Julie is currently storyteller-in-residence at elementary schools in northern New Jersey. As an established teacher of storytelling, Julie has taught adults at Rutgers University, and lead storytelling workshops for the NJEA State Convention, the NAEYC Convention and NJTESOL. Julie has B.S. in Special Education from Kent State University and an M.A. in Communicative Disorders from The Johns Hopkins University.
