A+ Fellow

A few years ago I joined the ranks of Teaching Artists with the A+ Schools program here in North Carolina. The core philosophy of A+, integrating arts into every aspect of the curriculum, strikes a deep personal chord with in me:

The A+ Schools Program is a whole-school reform model that views the arts as fundamental to teaching and learning in all subjects. A+ Schools combine interdisciplinary teaching and daily arts instruction, offering children opportunities to develop creative, innovative ways of thinking, learning and showing what they know. In A+ Schools, teaching the state’s mandated curriculum involves a collaborative, many-disciplined approach, with the arts continuously woven into every aspect of a child’s learning.
