Check it out: Op-ed by SALA Educator Illustrates the Impact 

We’ve said it for years: the arts-integrated approach found in our Summer Arts for Learning Academy (SALA) is transformative for student learning and for teachers. But don’t take our word for it—check out this wonderful commentary in the Baltimore Banner by SALA and City Schools educator Elaina Gomez-Alcala! 

In this inspiring piece, Elaina shares her experience this past summer in SALA, and explains how the free program for thousands of City Schools students has enhanced her teaching.

In the process, it also changes teaching—not just in the summer, but for year-round learning.”
