If you missed my announcement from earlier this month, check out this trailer for tomorrow’s event! I can’t wait to discuss Marvel Comics of the 1990s with such an illustrious panel of guests!
I am SO excited for Aug. 28th! I’ll be sitting down for a virtual discussion with unsung creators of Marvel Comics, Marcus McLaurin, Gregory Wright, and D.G. Chichester. This trio had a hand writing/editing characters like Luke Cage, Daredevil, Deathlok, Silver Sable and more! I’m happy we’ll have a chance to explore this era of comic book history and their particular corner of the Marvel Universe. Missing will be creator, Dwayne McDuffie, who passed in 2011 and ask you consider donating to the Dwayne McDuffie Foundation, a non-profit organization looking to establish academic scholarships for diverse students. Check out https://youtu.be/nT59XiRG2eU or follow #90sMarvel on Twitter for upcoming details.
Today’s the day my team and I take on the Global Wonder Woman Run! All across Boston and beyond, throughout the day, we’re individually running or walking 5K to motivate others to MOVE no matter what! I took it upon myself to get up early before the heatwave overtook. PHEW!
Where has time gone? It’s been months and I’ve failed to update my website’s blog in forever, but as you might imagine — there’s a lot going on. And that was BEFORE the shelter in place hit Boston (and the rest of the world). In as few words as possible, here’s what I’ve been doing —
- I found myself outside the art room and teaching fifth grade more often that not. If gave me the confidence to start teaching subjects beside the fine arts. I applied and was accepted as a graduate student for a Master of Education (Elementary). It’s been a lot of work and very different than getting a grad degree in my twenties. I am learning a lot.
- Because everything shut down (except for supermarkets, hospitals, and schools) my team and I are teaching from home. I’ve been trying to incorporate arts integrated projects to support lessons my colleagues are sharing. I’m positing (slightly tweaked) week’s worth of lessons here until I fully update this site.
- I had a fun project concerning a forgotten super hero from the 80’s, but it’s been postponed indefinitely now that most publishers have suspended all activity for the foreseeable future. Here’s a tease of a work in progress.
I work with an incredible staff and know how hard they work, so much of which goes unrecognized.
Sending love and strength to all of the teachers across the globe!

I recently spent several days traveling in Israel. The country is unlike any other I have been to before, with so many different groups of people cohabiting so closely together. I suppose it’s a lot like cities Boston or NYC, … Continue reading
Arts matter to Boston Public Schools because they embrace diversity and inclusion. The arts also help express and explore emotion, ideas, one’s identity, and more. That’s why I’m celebrating Arts Matter Day Oct 26! Please sign up at http://bit.ly/amd18signup and spread the word why arts matter to you.
