Episode Summary

In this episode I interview Christy Flahavan, former PTA president of Springer Elementary School about how in the course of three years she transformed a boring, beige campus into a school bursting with art. She had a vision, and despite a retiring principal and lackluster support, started with one project and built on that success.
