Teaching with Creativity: Take-Two!

Season Two of Teaching With Creativity

Your favorite arts integration vodcast returns for another information packed season!  Education Closet has brought Teaching With Creativity (TwC) back for a second season of nine episodes that will air on Wednesdays from February 7th through May 16th at artsintegration.com.  You can also opt to have episodes sent right to your inbox by subscribing on iTunes or YouTube.

What is TwC about?

Teaching with Creativity is the EducationCloset vodcast!  We offer educators free tips and techniques for utilizing arts integration and STEAM methods in the classroom in an audio-visual media.  We strive to interview teaching artists and prominent figures in the arts world who can offer unique strategies and perspective into the world of Arts Integration as well as demonstrating hands-on lesson plans that teachers can use in their classroom.  Teachers can choose to listen to the audio, or watch the video, as we offer the content in dual format.  Each episode comes with a full transcript available for download.

Who is in the cast of TwC?

In addition to myself, Teaching with Creativity features two very talented and experienced educators who serve as hosts to guide us through Season 2.  Amanda Koonlaba has dedicated over twelve years to teaching both visual and general education.  She was named Elementary Art Teacher of the Year for the state of Mississippi in 2016.  She also received the Arts Integration Service Award from the Mississippi Whole Schools Initiative in 2015.

Mary Dagani is a STEAM TOSA, Project Lead the Way Launch Lead Teacher, and an Orff Schulwerk music specialist.  Mary has spent her unique arts integration background to her 28 years of teaching in the classrooms of sunny California.  You may recognise us from our over 40 facebook live videos produced by EducationCloset, offering free ideas and inspiration to teachers!  We are so excited to be utilizing the vodcast music.
