About Ronna Levy
Ronna Levy has recently retired from over thirty years as a professor in a community college for the City University of New York, including seven-years teaching in the Los Angeles Community College System. Now, she has made the shift from telling stories to her students in the classroom to telling stories on the stage.
She is a two-time Moth StorySLAM champion, 99-Second Story Slam winner, finalist in the National Storytelling Grand Slam. She has been featured on the PBS Stories from the Stage; The Toronto Storytelling Festival; (Mostly) True Things; Every Family’s Got One; and in Grit’s Stories that Matter. During the pandemic, she was ‘Zooming’ all over the country telling stories.
Ronna’s vision of merging performing, storytelling, writing, and teaching was realized in her solo show, “This Gonna Be on The Test, Miss?” which based on her years teaching first year composition to academically underprepared students. “This Gonna Be on The Test, Miss?” has been performed in fringe festivals throughout the northeast.
