An interview with teacher and early childhood education researcher, Vivian Gussin Paley, is presented. When asked about the role of a teacher, when children are engaged in dramatic play, she replied that they play a very creative role, and make connections between charter and plot. She commented that teachers use storytelling as a teaching and learning device. She believes that families become sad when their children are excluded from the play, and the teachers don't know how to react to it.
