Encarta/Microsoft, approximately 20 hours.
College Network, preliminary consulting for textbook project, approx. 5 hours.
I am adviser to Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools and work in collaboration with Jane Pfefferkorn, Program Manager for School Community Cultural Arts. The recent and most important mission I’ve worked on with Jane Pfefferkorn, is to save the “Honors Arts Courses” within the WSFC school system’s art curriculum. Our ploy has been to fortify the reasons for maintaining an “honors status” within the arts statewide, in order to identify those students who excel in the arts. If the state abolishes this honors status, this will eliminate all possibility of national competition state-to-state.
