About Me

Hello and welcome to Traveling Exhibits Inspiration Ave. My name is Lisa and I'm the Exhibits Coordinator for Teacher's Discovery. It is truly an honor and a privilege to work with teachers and librarians throughout the United States in giving the gift of awe, inspiration and a museum experience to their students and patrons. Working with you has been so rewarding for me and I am moved and inspired daily with the heartfelt experiences that have been shared with me from so many who have hosted a Traveling Exhibit(s). When an educator is inspired it's contagious and therefore their students are inspired too. I will do my best always, to assist you in giving the best exhibition that will enrich the lives of all who are witness to our Spectacular Exhibits. With this blog I will share pictures,comments, ideas and activities that have been shared with me and use it as a tool for you to inspire your peers.

Salvador Dali Traveling Exhibit Makes Our Local Paper

This short article is in a southeastern Michigan newspaper featuring Brewster Elementary, a school near Teacher's Discovery that's been hosting Traveling Exhibits for the last three years. The exhibits have been sponsored by a parent-led Art Smart organization. Maria Romero of Art Smart visits each classroom at Brewster introducing the artist, artwork, and their background information before the exhibit's arrival. Grade level appropriate content of course. Maria was kind enough to extend an invitation for me to listen in on one of her Salvador Dali presentations to a second grade class. How lucky am I!! Getting a first hand glimpse into the classroom and being able to see how captivated the children are by the artwork and artist background is truly inspiring. It's why we do what we do.

  1. I like the idea. American kids should be exposed to works by Masters in the same way European kids are.
