Leading Minds

Leading Minds LogoThe Baltimore Curriculum Project’s Leading Minds series engages local stakeholders and national experts in a discussion of cutting-edge educational issues in order to influence policy and improve K-12 education. The series challenges conventional wisdom through tough conversations that consider the complexity of education policy and prioritize lasting solutions over quick fixes.

BCP is excited to have Rebecca Alban Hoffberger, AVAM Founder and Director, as a contestant in “Are You Smarter than a BCP 5th Grader?” on April 10th at the American Visionary Art Museum: baltimorecurriculumproject.salsalabs.org/AreYouSmarterthanaBCP5thGrader/index.html

A life-long devotee of the power of intuition and fresh thought, Hoffberger was accepted into college at age 15, choosing instead mime at Marcel Marceau's personal invitation to become his first American apprentice in Paris. By 19, she had co-founded her own ballet company and by 21, was a sought after consultant to a broad spectrum of non-profits, including research and development scientific companies. At 25, Hoffberger was awarded the title of 'Dame' for her work to establish medical field hospitals in Nigeria. She studied alternative and folk medicine in Mexico. Returning to the states, Hoffberger served on the Board of the Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Center in Virginia and worked as Development Director at the Sinai Hospital Department of Psychiatry for People Encouraging People, Inc. where she first conceived her unique national visionary museum/education center.
