I had the great honor, last Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012 to be one of four recipients of the Louise Tillotson Teaching Fellowship. The goal of the Louise Tillotson Teaching Fellowship program is to raise awareness of the value of excellence in education. Fellowship recipients are chosen based on their commitment to public education, breadth of experience, innovation in education, creativity in solving problems, communication skills and inspiration. Receiving this award is certainly a high point in my career. I'm grateful there are opportunities such as these that recognize teachers and the hard and challenging work that they do. I continue to love teaching and always am inspired by the students I teach.
The Rochester Museum of Fine Art in Rochester is now the proud owner of these two paintings inspired by my trip to Costa Rica. They will be part of their permanent collection. Very excited! When you're in the area stop in to support the museum's efforts and check out my work.www.rochestermfa.org
