Storytelling matters! In the words of Dr. Eric Umstead, professor of Special Education: "I wasn't good at anything that required memorization and was taught in a direct fashion. I suppose it was my want to spend time on things that mattered to me or someone took the time to explain how it mattered to me. For better or worse, that's why I always try to tie content that matters to stories to people can connect."
