Portfolios > Teacher Anonymous Happy Hour

Part research, part social experiment, part professional support, "Teacher's Anonymous Happy Hour: Stories of Frustration, Inspiration and Survival" was a collaboration with Laura Shaeffer and the Southside Hub of Production, conceived as a way to give teachers social space to share their stories, and also offer greater visibility to those who do important and often belittled work. It was the first of several events and exhibitions to highlight the difficult work of education, and to allow teachers to raise authentic, sometimes radical, sometimes infuriated, sometimes disheartened voices, with a strong dose of humor.
