Last week, Julie and I began facilitating a 5-month professional development course with nine Minneapolis Public Schools educators. This group will meet several days a month from now through November. We’ll be sharing Upstream Arts’ Artful Instruction Strategies…our methodology, and the best practices that we have developed around engaging students. What an honor it was to share space and ideas with these wonderful, passionate, and caring people. Julie and I will be learning much from this community as we progress on our journey.
As part of a journaling assignment, one of the educators, Myrna, was inspired by our discussions of creativity and spontaneity to pen a wonderful poem, and we wanted to share it here. Below – enjoy!
