I have found the best gift in field to come from my students and the conversations I have had with them. I feel like every Thursday I have made it my mission to get to know a student I know little about. They really bring a wonderful variety of interests and diversity to the classroom. I would love to see a project where students are working together. I think there is a lot students can learn from getting to know others around them. Seeing and learning about others and their differences can create so much understanding and empathy for others. I believe one of the greatest things we can gain through the arts is an understanding of each other. Bridging cultures and traditions allows for understanding and knowledge.
