This site highlights the work of Amy Demarest—a long-time collaborative partner of Shelburne Farms and curriculum coach who works in northern Vermont –and elsewhere around the globe when opportunities arise. She facilitates a process with teachers to articulate and design curriculum that means more to their students, themselves and the communities in which they teach.
