OGDENSBURG -- The Frederic Remington Art Museum recently added Kayli Harradine to its staff as part-time museum education specialist.

After attending SUNY Potsdam, Kayli received her bachelor’s degree in art education at St. Lawrence University. She later returned to SUNY Potsdam and earned a master's in curriculum and instruction, the museum said.

She hopes to implement Common Core Standards into lesson plans and to attract more children into Kid’s Place, according to a news release from the museum.

“The more people, the more we can teach different classes and have fun. I love what I have been doing. The staff has been so helpful and I couldn't ask for a better place to work,” Harradine said in the statement.

She will continue programs including Toddler Time, Lunch Bunch, Home School, Outreach and Distance Learning and establish new ones, the museum said.

“We were lucky to find Kayli, an Ogdensburg native with superb qualifications to excel in reaching the museum's education goals. In the past two weeks, she's shown great initiative, enthusiasm, and made great progress in connecting with the many constituencies we work with, including homeschool classes, regularly scheduled program visitors, the Ogdensburg Youth Garden Club, Small Fry Academy, Kid's Place staffers, volunteers, etc.“ museum director Laura A. Foster said in the release.

Harradine can be reached at the museum at 393.2425 or [email protected].
