Let’s Work Together

Hi everybody!

You will be working with talented high school students who are eager to learn about your traditional cultural arts. Please comment on this post if you or someone who you know is interested. Thanks!

I am thinking about the different groups that I will be working with next year and how applicable the shared agenda and the assessment will be as I build relationships and really seek to discover how best to serve the community.
