Gabrielle Bliss

To improve her opera skills and opera-based curriculum, Ms. Bliss will attend a weeklong Open Learning Institute at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. While there, Ms. Bliss will learn methods through which to connect classroom learning in core subject areas with libretto writing, music composition, staging, acting, singing, literary analysis, and critical response. Upon returning to her school, Ms. Bliss will work with student teams to create, perform, and respond to curriculum in engaging and personally meaningful ways.
