  • Proctor and Assessor in Dance for “Arts Achieve, Impacting Student Success in the Arts,” New York City’s Arts Education Assessments, through the Board of Education, that is “meant to create standardized ways of assessing student achievement in visual arts, music, theater, and dance in benchmark years: 5th, 8th, and 12th grades.”  The assessment will translate into better classroom instruction and higher student achievement. This multimillion dollar “Investing in Innovation Fund” grant from the US Department of Education is a five year project.  I have either taught in or assessed over 50 NYC public schools from elementary through high school this school year.
