Latina Storyteller Olga Loya, shared stories with the Kindergarten through Grade 5 students on September 19. Loya is a Durham Museum September Scholar in Residence. She engaged the students with vivid stories her Mexican grandmother and father would tell. Olga’s stories are "an impassioned quest to keep alive not only the fabric of her family but the larger Latino culture, richly robed in folktales, ancient myths, and history." The stories not only engaged the students in song and movement, but taught them life lessons about valuing oneself and being kind to others. This is one of the school's activities to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, Sept. 15 - Oct. 15.
