Crystal Rouleau

Ms. Rouleau, Mr. Knutson, and Ms. Zakula implement “Creative Expression Course,” a curriculum that encourages their at-risk students to express themselves through music, drama, dance, visual arts, and poetry. Students study poetry, combine prose and music to sing and record a poem, and use graphic design software to create original artwork. At the course’s conclusion, students present or perform their projects at a school show.
