The National Portrait Gallery’s Teacher Advisory Board is a dynamic national group of teachers interested in building a shared community of practice. I will be able to offer my expertise on developing strategies for working more effectively with other classroom teachers while also having an opportunity to provide feedback on museum program development. Through this exchange, Portrait Gallery staff and K–12 educators will improve resources for the museum’s K–12 audiences and bring the perspectives of classroom teachers from around the country into the museum. In addition, as a Teacher Advisory Board members I will act as Portrait Gallery ambassadors in order to broaden the museum’s national audience.
I'm more than my title will ever be.
