Decee Cornish has become a highlight of the year for the 5th and 6th graders at Durham Intermediate School. The award-winning historical storyteller has been visiting the campus for over 5 years, and always leaves the students asking for “one more story” even when his time is up.
Cornish visited DIS on January 30-31, and creatively tied in a myriad historical stories with the current curriculum of both the 5th and 6th grade curriculum. He is able to speak to every class and tell different stories for many eras of history, all while keeping these Durham students eager to hear more. Cornish is not only a favorite in Carroll ISD, but has been voted as a 4-Time Texas State Storytelling Champion and 2015 National Storytelling Champion.
