Weatherspoon’s Inaugural Teacher Advisory Group

We are pleased to share that an outstanding group of Guilford County K-12 educators started participating this fall in the Weatherspoon Art Museum’s inaugural teacher advisory group.

Along with Associate Curator of Education, Terri Dowell-Dennis, the group is exploring Weatherspoon’s collection through diverse curricular lenses, a task that will help us craft a K-12 education plan supporting teachers and providing meaningful experiences for students. Additionally, this group will advise us on curriculum development, participate in lesson planning and virtual instruction, and pilot and evaluate Weatherspoon educational materials.

In this group are Ninoshka Boylston (Piedmont Academy), Dorinda Carver (Archer Elementary), Heather Ellington (Kiser Middle), Juandalynn Jones-Hunt ( Parkview Village Elementary), Leigh Ann Little (GCS Arts Supervisor), Jonathan Permar (GCS Social Studies Supervisor), Maria Elena Surprenant (GCS Fine Arts Grants Curator), and Melinda Waegerle (Assistant Professor of Dance Education, UNCG and Project Director, Arts Raising Children Higher (ARCH).

This project is made possible by a gift from Sherry Sherrill.
