Ashley and Ryan are relaunching their campaign with a new goal to help offset school expenses for upcoming workshops. They have successfully self published the first children’s book of a series and together, the duo wishes to influence young lives through literacy and art. They have combined their teaching experiences to develop innovative workshops, which enforce creative thinking, artistic discovery, and movement.
Tyler’s TALL Tales crowd funding helps schools to save on their expense by raising contributions from their community.
*Funds collected over individual goals will be applied to, Tyler’s TALL Tales Creative fund. These funds are used to bring literacy and art into disadvantaged communities.

Her goal as a writer is to combine her background in education with her love and understanding of children to develop a series of children's books that leave kids laughing while teaching them something at the same time.
