Hello, everyone. Special, personal welcome to newly accepted students about to start your programs in the Arts Education programs at Lesley. I'm Professor Creegan-Quinquis. I am Chair of the Arts Education programs in the Graduate School of Education here at Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
We know you have found your way to Lesley because now more than ever, we need teaching artists in our schools, communities and businesses. Our students at Lesley become agents of change and make significant contributions to their fields. You may find that the programs, philosophies and delivery models may vary somewhat program to program. But you will find that across the board is a solid commitment to culturally responsive teaching and learning, social justice through arts integration and a real belief in the positive and transformative power of the arts in the lives of human beings. I want to personally thank you and personally invite you to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, should you have any questions about your transition into programs. That's email@example.com. Can't wait to work with you.
