It was an honor to be invited to attend the Arts Literacy Institute. Our session focussed on the ways in which educators can use arts integration within their classrooms to promote literacy and build community. I've been doing this work as a member of the Bread Loaf Acting Ensemble since 2010, and was grateful the institute asked me to attend. I was inspired by all the educators, Stacy Raphael and the master teachers of Words Come Alive at The Flynn, Kurt Wooten, Arnie Aprill, and Gowri Savoor.
You're all doing such important work!
