DCSD Faculty Art Show goes through Nov. 1

It is easy to see the creativity of Douglas County School District students. It is often on display in the art that graces the walls and display cases of our schools. This month, however, is a chance to see the skill and the passion of the art teachers behind it all.

 

Last spring she was one of only eight teachers to be honored with the Freddie G award. The award came with a trip to New York for master classes taught by industry professionals. She also led a trip to Sacramento for the Junior Theater Festival with seven of her students. To top it off she was given a $5000 grant for the school’s theater program. She plans on using the money to build a technical theater learning lab with the help of her students.
