Hail and well met!

My name is Lady Eleanor Cleavely. I am a bard, a herald, a scribe, and a lover of all things historical. I currently reside in the Shire of Loch Ruadh in the Kingdom of Ansteorra. I am married to Lord Sebastian de Rolstoun and have a son on the way. My persona is a 12th century Briton whose husband is a Crusader for the Crown. To ward off the lonliness while he's off crusading and fighting for the Crown, I sing and tell stories to those within my care.
I teach classes on beginning and intermediate Bardic Arts as well as Vocal Heraldry and Technique. I have served as a Baronial and a Kingdom Bard in three different kingdoms as well as a Kingdom Voice Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt. If you would like me to teach either subject for your populace, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Mundanely, I am a Senior English Literature & Journalism I teacher at a North Texas high school. I love what I do, and it allows me to expose my students to works they would normally never even consider enjoying. I take my mundane philosophy in the classroom and apply it to my classes in the SCA.
I look forward to meeting you!
Ever in service with a song and a smile,
Lady Eleanor Cleavely
