Organization: Community College of Allegheny County
Dr. Stephanie Goloway is a lifelong educator and advocate for play, storytelling, and the imagination. She has taught preschool, elementary school, special education, and college, as well as been a children’s librarian and professional storyteller. Her fascination with the thinking/learning process and the way it is supported by make believe, Story, and creative exploration is the thread that weaves together her diverse experiences. She holds a doctorate in Early Childhood from Walden University where her dissertation focused on the protective factors of resilience for children living with trauma and family substance use disorders, and how fairytales and storytelling align with these protective factors. She is a Professor Emeritus of Education at the Community College of Allegheny County in Pittsburgh, and author of Happily Ever Resilient: Using Fairytales to Nurture Children Through Adversity (Redleaf Press, 2022).
