    Hi Natalie! I want to thank you for the Gullah Gullah Island show! I truly enjoyed it as a preteen when it first aired, and even now as an adult. It was great to see a different culture from what I grew up with, and still sing several of the songs from the show. I love the educational (but fun) aspect of the show, and my hope is to one day be able to show that love of the show to my future kids, and to the kids that I take care of as a child care provider!

      Thank you Amber. I laughed when I read that you still sing songs from the show. To this day whenever I start a road trip I find myself singing, “and it’s 1, 2, 3, we’re on our way!”

    Hello Ms.Natalie,

    I am putting together my syllabus for my Literature and Composition Course at York Technical College in Rock Hill, SC. The theme for this particular course is based on identity and culture.

    Do you have any videos available of your storytelling? I’d love to include them.

      Hi Ikea,
      It sounds like an interesting syllabus. Unfortunately, I don’t have any storytelling videos. One day…
      Thanks for your interested in including me.
