Touchstone Center for Children 

March 2020

As winter folds into spring, I am pleased to announce the following upcoming conversations and workshops for teachers:

In association with the The Rockwell Museum in Corning, New York, and their workshops series: "Using the Arts to Build Empathy," I will be collaborating with visual-artist and teacher, Gigi Alvaré, for the first of a three-session workshop series on March 5th, 2020 entitled: "What if ... The Poetry and Delight of Re-Imagining the World Again." The workshop series is based on the Touchstone Center’s recent publication, What If ... A Poem of Our Imagining, illustrated by Gigi Alvaré, accompanying my poem of the same title.

As part of the annual conference at the Bank Street College of Education, "Teaching Kindergarten: Where Did the Garden Go," I will also be a giving a workshop on Saturday, April 4th, 2020 entitled, "The Magic of Being, The Delight of Becoming." The workshop will be exploring the world of objects and what children, in their imaginative insights, often bring to the life of objects themselves.
