Landmark West Honors PS9 2nd Grade Teachers: Tuesday, June 6th, 7-9pm
Each year, Landmark West works with 75 teachers in Upper West Side schools through a Keeping the Past for the Future youth education program. This year, Landmark West’s educators collaborated with second grade teachers of P.S. 9, and their wonderful principal Katherine Witzke to adapt their Neighborhood Explorers, Brownstone & Design Detectives, and Neighborhood Poetry programs, taking advantage of the school’s home base at the edge of the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District. Together, Landmark West and P.S. 9 investigated the landmarks that give our neighborhood its character and special sense of place. P.S. 9 students are learning not only the A, B, C’s of design and neighborhood history, but also the skills to become the informed, passionate civic leaders of tomorrow!
