Over the past few years I
have served as a substitute teacher in two Connecticut towns.
Although substituting is not full-time employment, and pays very
little, it has given me the opportunity to see how other teachers
organize classrooms and plan lessons. As someone who was a full-time
teacher in independent schools for over 25 years, I found the spaces
in which students spend their days to be a fascinating indeed.
Most of my work involves long-term projects for which I first gather images, text, and other artifacts and then use them to construct a final product. These images are part of a project I call Classroom- an exploration of the physical spaces to be found in public and private schools.
