Included are an international radio broadcast on the Voice of America and appearances at the legendary Cellar Door, where the duo was runner-up to Emmy Lou Harris in the competitive "Best of the Hoots." Several years later, Ms. Shih began her solo career in California, notably on her own PBS special Patty Shih - Music from the Gallery. Soon after, she returned to the east coast and settled in Huntington, N.Y.

It's not just that voice, that resonates just right with kids, it's the attitude. There's a sincerity that kids respond to. It lets them know they're in on the joke or whatever else is happening.
Here's a grown-up who understands and tells it just like it is.

Join Tom Hayes as he features the music of Joanie Calem and the writing and illustration talen of Rhonda Paglia and Ratna Kusuma Halim.
When she was 15, Joanie moved to Israel, and completed my high school degree at the Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem. I then continued my musical training in piano pedagogy, both in the conventional and the Suzuki systems, and early-childhood music and movement. I studied for many years with Anne Barlin, who is considered one of the “mothers” of the dance therapy field and an experienced teacher of the Dalcroze system. I maintained a private piano studio in my home for 15 years, as well as teaching pre-school and early elementary music and movement classes in a number of local schools in the area I lived in.
Three Little Gnomes and a Boy Name Orion is Rhonda Paglia's fourth children's book. What began as an impromptu story project in 2009 for her grandson, Orion, has blossomed into a captivating 68 page story with over 40 beautiful illustrations and charming characters that kids will love. Rhonda's illustrator for this book is Ratna Kusuma Halim from Indonesia. "She has brought the gnomes to life and turned this little garden story into something magical," said Rhonda.
Rhonda is a retired elementary teacher and very busy grandmother from Hermitage, Pennsylvania. She loves writing stories for her five grandchildren and now she's happy to share them with other kids. Rhonda also loves spending time in her garden, but she's always looking over her shoulder because she knows there are secret things going on out there when she's not looking!

Teresa Scanlan was crowned Miss America 2011 on January 15, 2011 at the 90thAnniversary of the Miss America Pageant on ABC. Since her crowning, she has been traveling the country appearing on numerous national and local television programs, making corporate appearances, and talking about MAO’s national platform, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and her personal platform of Eating Disorders: A Generation at Risk.
As Miss America 2011, Teresa has the special honor of serving as the National Goodwill Ambassador for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals throughout her year of service. As the Goodwill Ambassador, Teresa will help to raise funds and awareness for the over 170 CMN hospitals across the country.
As the youngest Miss America in over 70 years, Teresa is showing the country she is a leader and a role model for youth today. Teresa was home-schooled until her junior year of high school, before attending Gering High School for half of her junior year. She graduated early from Scottsbluff High School in the spring of 2010 after taking a double load of classes throughout high school.
Teresa’s passion for her platform, to combat eating disorders, stems from a friend who struggled with bulimia. She did research about eating disorders for her friend and discovered how rampant it was across the nation. Teresa hopes to educate children and adults alike as to the signs and risks of eating disorders, as well as how and where to get help for themselves or a loved one.
During 2011 pageant week, Teresa’s piano performance of “White Water Chopped Sticks” won her the Talent Award on the third preliminary night.
When her year is over, Teresa plans to attend Patrick Henry College to study Government. Her dream is to become an attorney and eventually a judge or President of the United States of America.
