Re-Imagining Education: The Teacher as Social Artist is designed for nursery years through university educators representing public and private schools by:

Celebrating teachers and our role in preparing students to live meaningful and purposeful lives.
Affirming our work in creating a world that works for everyone.
Past workshops at Horace Mann School in the Bronx, New York, have included educators from a wide geographic area—Arizona to Georgia to Illinois to New Hampshire to Nepal. To date almost 100 people have been part of the training.

Here are excerpts from what past participants say about their experience:
—Environmental Educator & Administrator
I feel I can make a significant difference in my teaching, school, and community with my new desire, hope, energy, and tools that I acquired from this conference.
I especially enjoyed the walk in silence around the campus. A walk I take most days turned into a journey of exploration of sky, shapes, colors, sounds, textures and feelings. For the first time, I noticed objects I had never seen before yet have always been there.
—School Library Staff Member
