Schembri, Pamela Teaching Personal Narratives Literature- Creative Writing,
Literature- Authors,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Everyone has a special story to share. Many times the assignment comes as a chore for students. Pamela's personal narrative workshop makes the task fun. She moves students beyond the basics of plot, and gets them to enjoy the emotional impact stories create. Using a humorous yet touching story from her own past, Pamela has motivated teens (and adults!) from all walks of life to share their stories.

ORPHAN TRAIN RIDERS----I am the author of 2 books on the subject. The largest mass relocation of children in America took place during the orphan train era 1854-1929. Over 400,000 children were transported by rail out of NYC and major cities. They were America's first foster children. I do a lecture/video presentation. Life in the 19th Century could be brutal. When adults fell victim to alcoholism, job loss, or drugs, the children were the first to suffer.
