What are People Saying About Sculpted Clay?
“Throughout the year, teachers begin to wear out and the lack of energy and motivation impacts their effectiveness in the classroom…we have to protect our teachers’ emotional well-being and state of mind in order to ensure that we are protecting our students’ emotional well-being and state of mind. From the start, this professional development really captured the essence of why it’s so important that we engage in this work and then what we can do to protect ourselves as we go through the year engaging in this work on a daily basis. My teachers were completely inspired and are eagerly looking forward to the next session!“
–Dr. Gorman Brown, Principal, Charles H. Flowers High School
“I am a better artist and educator simply by having the opportunity to attend this professional development. She’s all that!!”
–Cullen Waller, Music Department Chairperson
“I think for adults it’s hard to imagine what impact this residency had but I can confidently say that the impact is HUGE. To have this intelligent, interesting, creative ADULT validate your thoughts and ideas and genuinely want to hear what you have to say is an intensely powerful experience.”
–Stefanee Martin, Former Student, Standing on the Edge Residency Program
“This professional development workshop during our regularly scheduled staff PD was outstanding! My colleagues and I were completely engaged throughout. I was particularly impressed with her professionalism, knowledge of curriculum and ability to make each of us feel like rock stars! You can’t go wrong working with this dynamic thinker, organizer, writer, creator, teacher, and all around artist.”
–Christopher Assing, Teacher Mentor
“We have so much genuine love and respect for Ayesis Clay. As a parent, I thank her for being such a positive influence on my daughter.”
–Veronica Batie, Parent
“This was an awesome workshop! It gave me great tools to use for myself and that I can adapt for my students.”
–Dahlia Holmes, NYC Teacher
“I searched for a PD (professional development) for my teachers. Through this pandemic I have heard multiple times on what we should do for students– and throughout this entire period my thought has been what can we do for teachers so that they can do this for the students. This was the PD for that and this was the feedback that I received from teachers already… that this was for them and they appreciated it…it was everything that I thought it was going to be.”
Dr. M. Bond, Principal, Fox Creek Junior High School
