She teaches creative writing at Riverdale Country School in the Bronx, and is storyteller and founding member of St. Barnabas Church’s Rhythms of Grace, a multi-sensory, faith-based service for families with children of special needs. The creator of Stories Alive! writing workshops, Tania loves the way the crafting of a story or poem can give a student a sense of radical discovery, a place of revelation, and the chance to make mud puddles in the rain.
