Join beloved and award-winning educator and artist Celeta Hickman to learn about the power of storytelling and identity. The ability to share stories, and the many ways there are to do so, is what allows us to connect as humans. From student to teacher, neighbor to neighbor, friend to friend we want to listen, and we want to be heard. This is how we build our personal and community history Ms. Hickman will guide you in classroom strategies and activities that will empower your students to tell and interpret narratives of their own. Guided exhibition tour included. Light breakfast and lunch provided. Three (3) Act 48 hours provided. Participation includes a FREE yearlong Teacher Membership!
