Opening Nights Performing Arts and Leon County Schools host poetry teacher workshop

Opening Nights Performing Arts at Florida State University partners with Leon County Schools to present professional development workshops for local teachers led by Kennedy Center Teaching Artist Glenis Redmond as part of the John F. Kennedy Center’s Partner in Education program. Teachers from Raa Middle School, Deerlake Middle School and Apalachee Tapestry Magnet School of the Arts participate in the workshops. Redmond, an award-winning performance poet, shares art integration techniques to help students write poetry and then perform their poems to further communicate the written word with appropriate voice projection.
