On May 20, third grade students from the Inspired Teaching Demonstration School performed at the 35th annual Emily Jordan Folger Children’s Shakespeare Festival, held at the Folger Shakespeare Library.

With the support of their teacher, Mr. Ben Frazell, students brought to life scenes from Romeo & Juliet, performing the dialogue as written by Shakespeare to an audience of their peers, parents, and community members.

Schools in the DC, Virginia, and Maryland metropolitan areas may apply to appear in this prestigious festival.

September Inspired Teaching Institute

Teachers can’t control what happens between the time students wake up and when they arrive at school but they have a lot of control over what happens when students cross the classroom threshold. Participants in this fast-paced, idea-rich Institute will learn 20 different strategies for starting the school day!
