About Nan: Hi! I'm the new owner of Piddlin' Pottery. I'm a recently retired elementary school counselor and teacher. After a year off, I decided I needed to hang out with children and creative minds again. I love to read stories to groups and tie them into real life experiences and challenges. Come have a great time seeing what we can do when we let our imaginations and creativity take over!

About Kayle: Hi! I'm Kayle and I'm so excited to be able to share this fun week with you and your children! I just moved to Tyler from Orlando, FL where I worked at Walt Disney World for almost four years! I have a degree in Elementary Education which was utilized while teaching informally at Disney. I love children and I love reading stories, so this is a perfect way for me to spend my spring break!
