I am so proud to announce that in October 2020 I was accepted as a Teaching Artist with the Ohio Arts Council.
What does this prestigious title mean?
Teaching artists are professional artists who are dedicated to the arts, arts education, and arts integration with other subjects. Teaching artists are not arts teachers employed by schools. They are community members who partner with schools and other educational providers to deliver performances, workshops, and/or longer-term residency programs. Teaching artists work to supplement and build on existing arts and non-arts curricula and do not supplant the work of licensed or certified arts educators.
This online Teaching Artist Roster represents Ohio artists who demonstrate artistic excellence; the ability to integrate academic content; effective classroom management and student engagement; and strong communication with education, arts, and cultural partners. Teaching artists on this roster are vetted by an application and observation process and are required to participate in on-going professional development to provide the highest quality arts education experiences and grow their teaching artist knowledge and skills.
