“It’s been a great learning and working with TAP. From the workshops to my in-class internship with at PS 85 in Queens with Amanda Newman and Libby Mislan, I could see the work put into practice. It was thrilling to see Mislan and Newman work together to support their students to express themselves through words and movement. With the education I received from TAP and the elective webinars, I look forward to implementing their wisdom as I grow in my own artistic teaching practice.”
Most Memorable TAP Moment:
“It’s hard to narrow the experience down to one moment. From day one, I could feel the warmth, support, and generosity of the TAP community. I have learned so much from my fellow peers and facilitators.”
