I have the honor of working again on an A.I.E residency at Broad St School in Bridgeton NJ. This year, students in grade 8 are creating a glass mosaic that documents their migration/immigration stories. I worked with teaching artist/poet Jacob Winterstein who helped the students to write a poem entitled "I Carry". Jacob created a group poem from the individual poems. Students are creating stained glass mosaic "windows" that illustrate lines from the group poem.
