A Principal’s Vision Becomes a Reality at Grant Avenue

Teachers at Grant Avenue are kicking off this semester with a brand new space to collaborate and recharge. A year ago, Principal Kristin Erat shared a vision with CFK: What if we could turn a storage room into a teacher collaboration space?  CFK saw an opportunity to establish a relationship between the school, Gensler Design and Hillmann Consulting LLC to donate their time and design and construct the space. Recently, Grant Avenue hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the room, which is featured in the Bronx Times. Now, teachers can use this space to continue to inspire students and each other. Many thanks to Gensler Design and Hillmann Consulting LLC for making Principal Erat’s dream come true!
