I’ve worked in libraries since 2013, when I first joined a public library as an intern back in San Diego.
I was immediately immersed in mostly all of the departments of the library but the one that took my heart was -- Storytime <3
I've loved it since day one; I can still remember how nervous I was on my first ever storytime performance. I was a library intern for about a year and eventually moved to the LA area to work in another public library but this time, as a Library Specialist with a focus on storytime. Since then, I've learned much about the world of storytime, what makes a good program, and how it impacts a kid's early childhood.
I’ve been working and conducting storytimes since late 2013. Currently I develop, conduct and perform 5 storytimes a week.
My specialties are:
baby and preschool storytime.
A couple of years ago I also developed and taught a preschool summer camp for ages 3-5. It was a very enjoyable experience that definitely taught me more about teaching in the preschool area.
My teaching style has always been teaching in a fun and creative way.
I believe that the best way to teach our children something is through enabling their will to do so, and what better way than through a bit of fun, creative and enjoyable methods.
I have developed my storytime programs through the years so that they are a comfortable, fun, and creative experience for my storytime kids, their parents and myself.
All of the material I will be posting on TPT has been previously used at my personal storytimes, and they've worked for me in positive ways.
I love what I do and hope you enjoy the material I will be providing.

I’m a creative girl in her late 20’s who learned about Storytime programs while volunteering at my local library back in 2013.
I graduated college with a degree in English Literature and right after graduation I was unable to find a job. That’s the moment when I started volunteering at my local library.
I enjoyed it so much that I ended up volunteering full time for almost a year, focusing on multiple aspects of the library world, but more specifically storytime. After that I landed a job at a public library in the LA area and it was there were I specialized in doing only storytimes.
I am now finishing Grad school and currently conducting 5 storytimes a week in multiple libraries.
I also run a personal storytime resource website: craftypammy.com
