#71: You Don’t Know My Story

On today’s podcast, I am talking with award-winning Media teacher Jane Bannester. Jane has been teaching media, drama, and speech for over twenty years in the Ritenour school district in St. Louis County, building one of the most formidable media programs in the country, winning multiple awards year after year. Jane credits the success of the program to the stories that students have told, and how they tell it. She believes in preparing students for a life of storytelling, no matter what career they decide to pursue.
