Lincoln Center Scholars

  • As part of the Lincoln Center Scholars Program, I was selected to give a speech to my Cohort on June 23, 2017. This reflection was then featured in essay form on the Lincoln Center Education website.
  • In August 2016, I was asked to facilitate a professional development session with teacher colleagues. The topic concerned the teaching applications of the Capacities for Imaginative Thinking (slides below).
