Join EASTCONN's Arts at the Capitol Theater Educator, Stacy Vocasek, for an engaging session where educators will be introduced to activities that will help students find their own voices through analyzing, discussing, and writing narrative pieces. Students will get to share of themselves, build community, generate discussions, connect to art and literature, and create their own stories in a variety of ways.

Stacy Vocasek teaches English and creative writing at a performing arts high school in Connecticut. She lives in two worlds – that of an artist and an educator, and looks for ways to engage both of those worlds as much as possible. Most recently, Stacy has attended the Summer Teacher Institute at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, a National Endowment of the Humanities Landmarks Workshop titled Gullah Voices, and presented art-based reading and writing strategies at TEACH 2019.
