    Core Group Member of the Lincoln Center Institute/CCNY Teacher Education Collaborative in Aesthetic Education.  2010 to present:  Aesthetic education strengthens core skills that readily apply across the curriculum and throughout life. Educating with imagination is a rigorous undertaking, and the skills of observation, critical thinking and problem solving are as relevant to the artistic process as to conducting a biology experiment or solving a mathematical equation (2007 Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Inc.)
