What some of you might not know about me is that before I was an art teacher, I was a horticultural therapist! I worked at NYU Medical Center. Here, in their amazing greenhouse, I would work with patients in the hospital on gardening projects to help them get better. Even though I have a different (and amazing) job now, I still love gardening.
Yesterday, the 4Fives and I took a trip to the Glass Garden where I used to work. We had an awesome time! PS 58/4Fives friend, mentor, and all around amazing person Jackson came with us. Here is a link to his blog post about the trip. Thanks SFJ! The 4Five students' post will come soon.
Enjoy the long weekend!
