Retired educator becomes award-winning storyteller
Michael Lockett ’72, M.S. ’75, Ed.D. ’92, devoted 33 years to public school education as a teacher and administrator.
In retirement he is an award-winning storyteller. Known as “The Normal Storyteller,” children call him “Grandpa Mike.” He has used humor and dialects to engage audiences in more than 3,000 programs around the world. He has completed tours of Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, and South Korea. Lockett has also authored six children’s books.
Originally published in Taiwan, they have English on one side and Mandarin on the other. All come with an audio CD in both languages to encourage learning, which is his goal.
