Today was no ordinary day.
Today I heard from an old friend..Blue’s Clues’ SIDE TABLE DRAWER, also known as Aleisha LaNae’ Allen, M.S.!!
Throughout the years in kids’ media, we’re involved in so many interactions with actors, artists and all types of creatives. But when you reconnect with them down the road, and see where their lives have taken them..there’s nothing better!
Here’s a kind note from Aleisha, who has apparently moved on from simply holding Steve/Joe’s notebook.
My name is Aleisha L. Allen; I was the voice of Side Table Drawer for the Blue’s Clues Series! I hope all is well!
I wanted to reach out to you because I graduated from Teachers College (Columbia University) this past May with an M.S. in Communication Science and Disorders (CSD)- Speech Language Pathology. Shortly after, I found out that you, too, attended TC! Similarly, we both studied subjects regarding Childhood Development!
It was such a pleasure to be THE Side Table Drawer and always be there for Steve when he needed his “Handy Dandy Notebook”. It was one of my first reccurring roles, and one that is my favorite, as well as the favorite of so many. So, I owe you a HUGE “Thank You!”. 🙂
As a recent graduate, I am aiming to resume my acting, particularly voice overs, as well as culminate what I’ve learned about Childhood Language Development and talents to be innovative! The goal with having my degree is to bridge both of my careers in order to provide effective services for individuals with communication disorders.
Again, thank you so much. Congratulations on your successes and innovations, and I hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks so very much, for taking the time to reach out and say “Hi”, my friend, Side Table Drawer
