|Sandy Pomerantz has worked for 34 years with the Philadelphia School District, first as a teacher and then as a librarian. In addition, she was a storyteller, folksinger and a folk DJ. Through her stories and folk music, employing her background in dramatics, songwriting, lore, puppetry and games, she tried to spark an early interest in children in folk culture and art. She led workshops on a variety of folk arts, had her radio show, and performed on TV. She took her stories and music beyond the Philadelphia scene, performing in libraries, churches, synagogues, bookstores, scout camps, festivals, schools, birthdays, etc. Sandy passed away in October 2005.
