The New Haven Independent wrote a great article featuring the summer teacher institute here. Monica Bunton, one of our partnership teachers at Fair Haven k-8 School is shown above working in the galleries. The second grade team at Fair Haven has been working with Tom Lee, teaching artist and storyteller for the past three years. Tom works with students both in the classroom and in the galleries. The opportunity to practice oral language skills and to exercise rich descriptive vocabulary has been particularly useful for Fair Haven’s bilingual students.
If your school is interested in learning more about the partnership program, please leave a comment below.
