Tim Archibald was named VSA Massachusetts' Employee of the Quarter for April - June, 2016.
Teaching Artist Tim has been a vital member of the VSA MA family for over 25 years, when he first started teaching music at the Henderson Inclusion School, then called the O'Hearn School, in Dorchester, MA. He was instrumental in supporting the school's full-inclusion goals by making music learning accessible and engaging to students with a wide range of abilities, supporting family involvement efforts through performances, and creating an environment of joy and partnership in the school. Thanks to his efforts, the school has become the highest performing elementary Boston Public School. Tim has an uncanny ability to see each child and what he or she has to contribute and to create roles in which all can demonstrate their talents and abilities. He has contributed immensely to the COOL Schools family of teaching artists, sharing valuable resources, ideas, and creativity.Tweet
