I volunteer with an elementary public school in Washington, DC, setting up
community resource partnerships. I've help set up a partnerships for the
school with two Smithsonian Museums (Freer/Sackler Gallery of Art and the
Insect Zoo at the National Museum of Natural History), a community garden
group (to plant tulip and butterfly gardens), an internet education site for
curriculum and programs on Monarch Butterflies and a Tulip Garden
(www.learner.org) and a fiber arts guild to fund a knitting teacher in one
class (Potomac Craftsmen Guild). I'd love information about the programs
that this museum has established.
I now work in accessibility of buildings for people with disabilities for
the Access Board, an agency of the Federal Government. Prior to that, I
worked as an Education Specialist at the National Museum of African Art,
developing and teaching art workshops for students, adults and families. As
an artist, my media is knitting.

For those who might be interested, this museum is a forerunner in
education in the arts, classes with foster families, street outreach etc.
They have had a capital campaign in the last few years that has taken the
emphasis off education mission but are trying to recover (new museum now
being built right next to Chihuly's Glass Museum). I am on the education
committee of the Board and would be glad to give more details if
