“My favorite part was all of it. She was so good, I didn’t want her to go.“

- Zoey (3rd Grade), Wilkes Elementary Classroom Teacher, describing Resident Teaching Artist Vicky Edmonds

“We connect the mosaic tiling to geometry (area, perimeter, and spatial reasoning). One of the greatest parts of this is seeing the kids who are typically more “right brained” shine and lead the class. This taps into areas of the brain that a majority of the kids are not used to using. Starting with a smaller tile and then using the larger one is a great way to scaffold the activity.”

– Erin Graham, Susan Knottnerus, Ordway 3rd grade Classroom Teachers, describing Resident Teaching Artist Tim Lowell

“…because it allows ALL students to have an opportunity to explore dance, as some of our students might not get that chance otherwise…they learned that they can express themselves and their creativity in many different ways… so important to their overall development and appreciation of their capabilities.”

– Megan Berg Blakely Elementary Kindergarten Classroom Teacher, describing Resident Teaching Artist Gary Reed
