Full of energy, I have been described as a "spark plug" or "firecracker."
Raised in Princeton New Jersey, I spent four great years at Williams College and then got a Masters in Art History at Columbia. I worked in the curatorial department at the Guggenheim for several years, before I realized it wasn't for me! Since then, it's been education that fascinates me. I am convinced that we need to change the paradigm of education to better prepare students for their world. The present model is no longer valid and students are coming out of schools asking 'what now?' and rightly so.
Lane-- I'm an art teacher and I love this idea! I wonder if you even have to constrain it with a box? Literally. I have always loved the Cornell boxes, but I wonder if you just went with a container? And I wonder what examples you could find from other cultures? I'm thinking Asian art, Egyptian, Meso-American, hmmmm. Ancient, contemporary? So many cool examples-maybe ask the students to find and share an example as inspiration? Build this out!! It's great! Lisa
