Teachers are Artists and Artists are Teachers

The arts have played a major role in Marisol Santana’s development since when, as five years old, she began learning how to dance and play musical instruments.

Developing Resilience for the Challenges of School – and Life

Resilience is the superpower that we develop when we can look at life’s challenges, at our mistakes and even traumas, accept them and see them as steps towards our growth.

We demonstrate resilience when we experience trauma and accept our pain – yet not let it define who we are.
