Ms. Grater has created and developed the curriculum for Project Arts at UNMS. Her core instructional belief, that students learn best when motivated by an engaging curriculum is illustrated in the work her students create. In Project Arts at UNMS, students are immersed in an interdisciplinary curriculum which weaves the investigation of humanities (historical and current), mathematics, and the physical sciences with the visual and performing arts.
