Pam Temple and Spencer Funk are professional songwriters-performers-musicians and are the award-winning contemporary folk duo, Wild Carrot. Wild Carrot toured in South America two times as "Folk Music Ambassador" with the U.S. State Department and was named "Best Folk Act" and nominated for "Artist of the Year" by the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards.
For the past four years one of the many facets of their professional work has been working with teachers and students in classrooms with arts integration. In that short time, their work in schools has gained much attention, becoming a favorite choice for arts integration among area teachers. Based on the merit of their work in arts integration, Wild Carrot was chosen by The Muse Machine for special training in arts integration through a partnership with John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Wild Carrot has completed the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Seminars: "Planning Effective Arts-Integrated Residencies for Students," "Artists as Educators: Planning Effective Workshops for Teachers," and "Artists as Educators: Presenting Effective Workshops for Teachers."
