Alice Butler Collins

 

For over thirty years I was a successful principal, administrator and teacher in the Chicago Public Schools. Currently I am a author, storyteller and workshop facilitator. Storytelling and writing allows me to engage, empower, educate and entertain audiences. Through storytelling I raise consciousness, spark laughter, enjoyment, cultural awareness, understanding and self-discovery in audiences of all ages. My goal is to "celebrate life."
