Where Passions and Peers Collide: 8 Weeks and Counting

Exactly 8 weeks ago, I began my journey as a masters student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, excited to be exploring my passion for the arts and education with my fellow classmates. Nothing could have prepared me for the most dynamic and beautiful intersection of arts, education, and friendships that came hurtling our way.

Exactly 8 weeks ago, I never would have imagined a learning voyage that would take me from the classroom to museums and concert halls; from seminars to podcast recordings and outdoor rehearsals; from presenting on children’s television and Muppets to playing with paint and feathers and yarn… and never a moment without company and laughter.

Exactly 8 weeks ago, I arrived at this school without knowing anyone or anything that was taking place within the school and around the city. 8 weeks on, I’m glad to say that nothing has stayed the same, and I hope nothing ever does.
