It’s TGIF for Teachers! Drop by our Teacher Lounge event to unwind after the week, swap stories with fellow teachers, and join a special education program dedicated to the special exhibition RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom, on view through August 12.

Check out a curriculum slam in the Lecture Hall, drop by the Education Resource Fair featuring Hip-Hop education and youth development organizations, and test out a hands-on Hip-Hop activity with an accompanying lesson plan for your class. Bring your team, make some new friends at neighboring schools, and learn about OMCA’s teacher resources while you relax.
