One of her favorite interactive projects was her classes’ annual marionette show. Like many of her classroom projects, it grew and evolved over the years, and became Bradford’s signature school event. “I started the marionette project when I first started teaching,” Bradford said. “It was an art project, and the children would learn to make them from scrap material. The parents would contribute items for the puppets. It was something that didn’t cost the (school) district any money.” Eventually the art project blossomed into a full-fledged puppet show. True to form, Bradford made fun a learning experience.
