Education at the Huntington: Attracting New Schools

by:  Lynn Johnson, Associate Director of Education at 10/03/2011

A few people were asking about what was going on in Education last night from 4 - 6, so Donna thought it would be a good idea to let you know about it.

We are always recruiting new schools for all of our programs, but last night we were highlighting Student Matinees and Poetry Out Loud. We did some networking and invited school teachers to come to an informational meeting covering both of these programs.

We also had a guest poet, Dr. Daniel Thomas Moran who is also an Assistant Professor at Boston University's School of Dentistry (yes a dentist AND a poet), share his love of poetry with 22 high school English teachers and librarians. He read two of his poems and is very excited about being involved with Poetry Out Loud. He signed copies of his book for our department, and if you're interested in poetry, any one of us would be happy to lend it out.

Our Poetry Out Loud State Champion, Michaela Murray also beautifully delivered two of poems for a very captive audience. She is riveting and will be joining us for the Open House if you'd like to see her perform.

We covered the nuts and bolts of both programs and offered our friendly educational services to all in attendance. A majority of them also attended Candide last night after the meeting.

All in all, we had a very successful meeting, and welcomed some new teachers on board for both of these programs.

That's all on the Education front for today anyway...

  1. I really feel Twitter is notnihg more than a Beta, put up to see whether we (the people) like the idea of networking around the globe. Well, surprise, surprise, we DO like it case proven! However, it then hasn't really progressed much from there, in itself, and reliability, as Clay mentioned above, is one of the key factors.The Beta status is most likely a large part of why people, and most especially businesses, still don't get it ! As a way of doing business in the New Economy, it has phenomenal potential. But lack of development of the core product has led to the spawning of a wonderful variety of bolt-ons & Twitter tools Tweetdeck is one of my favorites, together with the many alternatives for use on my iPhone but this level of gadget complexity is another reason for high drop-off rates.One of the most important mantras in marketing today is make it EASY for the customer to buy (or in this case use) the product or service .With the case proven, I have no doubt that someone is already working on a more complete offering. Twitter is a marvellous component part of something bigger & better that we haven't seen yet! Overcome the need for so many other bolt-ons & make it easier for us all to use consistently and you will mop up big time, whoever you are!
  2. I realized more new thngis on this fat reduction issue. A single issue is that good nutrition is tremendously vital whenever dieting. A huge reduction in bad foods, sugary food items, fried foods, sugary foods, pork, and whitened flour products may perhaps be necessary. Possessing wastes unwanted organisms, and contaminants may prevent ambitions for losing weight. While specified drugs for the short term solve the condition, the awful side effects are not worth it, and in addition they never offer you more than a temporary solution. This can be a known undeniable fact that 95% of fad diets fail. Many thanks for sharing your opinions on this blog.
