- Meet our December Mentor, Shelly Breaux, art educator at David Thibodaux STEM Magnet Academy in Lafayette, LA. In her classroom, Breaux focuses on inquiry-based learning, problem solving, collaboration, conceptual thinking, and constructive criticism. She believes in using art as an educational tool, and that art provides her students with a voice and an outlet. As she so often says, “Art is about the process, not the end product.” Breaux believes the future is looking for self-reliant learners. “It is in our classes that we can help mold this kind of success in our students. Students explore different ways of learning, take ownership of their work, and gain confidence when art is used as an educational tool.” Check out her blog below:
