On May 23 I received artist of the year award from the Northeastern Educational Intermediate Unit. Debbie Donowski received the teacher of the year award. The photo shows us with our award - beautiful vessels made by ceramist Skip Sensbach. On June 1 we gathered again for a breakfast to honor the seventh grade 'core' students who worked on the 'Tiger Eyes' to be hung on the outside on the Seventh Grade Academy building. As a rostered artist of Pennsylvania I am fortunate to go in to school for a month at a time to work with the art teacher and students to produce a work of art that enhances the morale of all.
