Developing and Inspiring a “4C” student

by Sarah Rinner, Elementary School Program Director

For the past two weeks, our 2011-2012 community of teaching artists have been exploring and learning about the TAP Afterschool program and what makes us tick.  We are excited to introduce our newest goal for the program: developing and inspiring a “4C” student. Which means that through the creative arts, we are helping our students be Creative Artists, Confident Leaders, Critical Thinkers, and Courageous Allies.  Our trainings were full of engaging project ideas, strategies for developing positive and inclusive classrooms, and lots of laughter as our new team of teaching artists got to know each other.  This year will truly be amazing, with more programs in more schools serving more students than ever before.  TAP is very lucky to have such talented, compassionate, and inspiring teaching staff for our afterschool programs.
