Have you heard? It’s time for START to begin! We welcome our totally awesome Dartmouth students once again, as they infuse our curriculum goals with the arts in their own unique way. They will be visiting every Tuesday for six weeks starting October 3rd. The third graders will be jumping for joy to see Autumn from our Animals session is back, and some of our older students will be so excited to catch a glimpse of Emily in the hall after her session with them on Engineering. Welcome! We can’t wait to learn with you!
START volunteers Emily, Halley, and Autumn, with Dartmouth HOP Center Outreach Coordinator, the inspiring Mary Gaetz
***Welcome back, Emily! Emily is a senior government major, French and Chinese minor. She just spent five months in China and is planning to move back there after graduation to do a year of research. She is in love with the moon, everything about the moon. One thing she finds fascinating is that while the stars are different depending on where you are on the globe, the moon is the same. Ask her for some lunar facts!
***Halley is studying English and education. She is a senior from Arkansas. She especially enjoys travel, and when she was growing up, dancing was one of her passions. Ask her for a little tap dance demo!
***Autumn is a junior psychology major, and she especially loves running, running, running. She was in 4-H growing up, and she was excited to hear that not only do we know about 4-H around here, but some members of our class have their own farm animals and know about showing. She had horses and goats in 4-H, and she is from Virginia. She has just returned from several months studying in India, and she hopes you will ask all about it!
***Don’t forget our wonderful leader, Mary Gaetz! Mary is the outreach coordinator at the Hopkins Center. She studied theater, brings lots of children’s theater to the area, and directs plays in the community as well. She has a husband and two cats, and she grew up in Kansas.
