It is hard to believe that it was almost seven years ago that I began my internship in the Education Department at the Amon Carter Museum. I was both excited and honored to be behind the scenes at a museum whose collection and programs I had long admired. A few months later, I felt like I won the lottery when I was actually offered a full-time, paid position in the deparment. Since that time, I have had the privilege of sharing the Carter’s collection with a wide variety of audiences– tours for tots, observation programs for osteopaths, lectures for learners, fun-activities for families, and you–and have loved (almost) every minute of it.
So, as you can imagine, it is with great sadness that I say today is my last day. I am leaving the museum to spend more time with my growing family–the most precious artwork I have ever seen.
Thank you for letting me share some of my experiences with you.
