The Shared Space is Open For Business!

October 28, 2020 | Becca Brasser

We are so excited to announce that the Shared Space is finally open!

While we made room in our daily schedules for project work and art experiences from the first day of school, we did not use the shared art classroom known as the Shared Space until last week.

As soon as they entered, the students were immersed in cardboard, paint, and more as they showed what they had researched about Vikings. In particular, they were thinking about Viking ships, Viking armor, and Viking homes.

Both in-person and distance learners shared techniques and conversations as they worked on their individual projects.

Becca Brasser

Teacher, Grade 1

Becca Brasser has been teaching first grade at Mustard Seed School since 2002. She’s passionate about teaching children to read, write, experiment, and take risks as they explore the world around them. Her own studies (including a Master of Arts degree from New Jersey City University) have given her expertise and experience in the area of literacy education.

Ms. Brasser especially enjoys taking her students on field trips all over the New York Metropolitan area, traveling on foot, subway, bus, commuter train, and ferry. Some favorite trips: the Hudson Hike, the New York Transit Museum, and the Central Park Zoo to study penguins.

Although she lives in the city, Ms. Brasser loves escaping to nature and finding it in her everyday life as well. She loves to explore rivers and lakes, woods and mountains with her husband Matt, their daughter, Annika, and son, Theo.
