Arriving this past summer from Texas, Ellie McKay is in for quite the ride. And I don’t mean regarding the weather.
Wrapping a present for Grandmother Bear, it’s beautifully wrapped!
As the new director of Theatre Arts Training (TAT for short)–Children Theatre Company‘s education program taking up residence in the basement of the theatre portion of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts–Ellie has a passion for helping children learn that they have a story to share.
And that’s just what she wants to do. Learn their stories and encourage them to share it.
If we left it up to Anne to write her own bio, it would never get posted. She doesn’t enjoy talking about herself, but Anne does love exploring the Twin Cities with her family and sharing her finds here. She, her husband and their four kids are lifelong residents of St. Paul.
