This July, not only did I work at the Rosenbach Museum & Library, but I also took on a teaching artist position with Philadelphia Arts in Education Partnership. Three days a week I'd drive up 76 to H.R. Edmunds Elementary in northeast Philadelphia to work with 45-125 students grades k-9 ... it was an experience. I think the kids made some great work though (when they weren't running around screaming and choking each other), and I'll have a few posts of the different projects soonish. (My iPhone blog app keeps crashing with the multitude of photos ... oh well.) One thing I learned: you definitely have to roll with the punches when you're dealing with the school district (and there are a lot of punches).
