I contacted Darren and arranged for him to visit our school and he spent a week presenting to every one of the 6th grade classes at Berry Intermediate. His presentation was so well received by the 6th graders that he was applauded from the windows as he shared his talents and there were students lined up to talk to him after every presentation. Below are some photos from the week and a little about what he shared with our 6th graders.

Yes, he even incorporates music into the presentation! A man of many talents, Darren is an excellent musician!
We are so lucky to have met Darren Goodman and had him visit our school. This has been and continues to be a meaningful experience for the students. We are in the process of making a mural of paper tears that each represent a feeling or emotion. Darren will reproduce some of the student-made tears in glass and this piece of art will be donated to a local Children's Hospital.
Next time I will share the process of creating the mural of tears.
