Describe a favorite or memorable moment in your classroom at Packer.
In 2015, Lower School Art Teacher Risa Glickman, Dance Teacher Alicia White, the Kindergarten teachers and I worked together on an interdisciplinary project involving Camille Saint-Saens' Le carnaval des animaux. The children made fish hats to dance to "Aquarium" and hens/rooster shadow puppets for "Hens and Roosters." We performed it in my classroom.

I enjoy using puppets with my classes, especially shadow puppets.
