Ellen K. Singer

Ms. Singer develops skills in story formation, shadow puppetry construction, and performance delivery by attending the Eugene O’Neill Puppetry Conference which, under the auspices of the Jim Henson legacy, brings together puppetry masters to mentor students and practicing puppeteers. After studying with a shadow puppet master, Ms. Singer returns to her school with a polished performance of a vignette relevant to her students’ lives and with the skills to help students execute and perform their own shows to help infuse creativity into a measurement and assessment focused curriculum.
