Mr. Dia began visiting us on Wednesday afternoons to share his Gullah / Geechee heritage. He is using the storytelling medium to share his cultural history. We will continue to welcome Mr. Dia into our classroom on Wednesday afternoons. Mr. Dia is a Middle School Language Arts teacher who received a Light the Fire grant this summer to study the Gullah / Geechee culture. Occasionally he'll bring along middle school social studies teacher, Grady Smith, to help spin his tales.
