Gearing Up for #GivingTuesday: LoriAnn Tholl


Second-grade teacher Loriann Tholl from PS 153 in Maspeth, Queens partners with our teaching artists to bring the art of puppetry to her students. ArtsConnection’s Bridging the Achievement Gap through Puppetry (BRIDGES) program enriches early childhood literacy, engaging kindergarten through 2nd-grade teachers in professional development processes that help them incorporate new strategies into their teaching practice. The storytelling and puppetry curriculum creates a fun and exciting realm for children to learn a full range of early literacy skills, building a foundation for continued success in school.
