  1. ‘“Occasionally a teacher comes along to infuse real life creative process with students.

    We are an arts organization called No.9 Contemporary Art and the Environment and we had the pleasure of collaborating with Richard Baxter on a four-day AND a two-day intensive design program for [his] grade 7 students. The program is called Imagining My Sustainable City. Richard’s interest in technology enhanced our inquiry based project and, together, we set the playing field for all [his] students to succeed. As a teacher, Richard is forward thinking with a honed interest in expanding student access via technology to share peer to peer work within a classroom to classroom sharing works between districts and provinces. Our collaboration was truly remarkable because with Richard, we tried to give youth the tools they need to be agents for change in their communities.”
