About Alane Starko: I am a recently retired professor, former elementary teacher, very amateur musician, sporatic mosaicist, occasional storyteller, and multiple cat tender who is fascinated by creativity. In particular, I am interested in exploring ways teachers and parents can support and enhance creativity in the young people around us. I’ve written about these ideas in Creativity in the Classroom: Schools of Curious Delight and now in this blog I’m hoping to explore them with you. With luck, we can spur on our own creativity as well. Welcome!
