Nancy Leppard-BookATeller

Nancy came to storytelling after a 15-year career teaching both special needs and mainstream pupils.  She first discovered the power of storytelling in the classroom, where she used it to engage and inspire her pupils. Her storytelling moved beyond the classroom and since 2008 she has been training and entertaining people of all ages; from pre-schoolers to senior citizens; and from all walks of life, from teachers to taxi drivers.

As a professional storyteller, Nancy performs and teaches storytelling in numerous mainstream primary and secondary schools. She continues her passion for working with pupils with special needs by conducting storytelling workshops in various schools. She has also conducted Reading Workshops for the Society for Reading and Literacy to encourage parents to read to their children. Shopping malls, old folks’ homes, MRT trains and the Singapore Flyer are some of the venues Nancy has performed at.

Her favourite quote is by the famous scientist Albert Einstein which reads: “If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
