Hello, I am the art teacher in the high school. My greatest satisfaction is igniting students' passion for the arts. My classroom is a heaven of solitude from academic subjects. Students experience success and discover that nothing is impossible, if you try. The energy level is at "Peak Alert" when no one is talking, no one is moving around, and the music is playing a soft melody; students are totally right-braining it. Then the bell rings, and everyone is scrambling to get to the next class. This is ART. 

My favorite quote is by Albert Einstein - " Logic will get you to A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere."  To me this speaks volume about the world of art.... without imagaination where we would be in every aspect of our lives?
