- Why NAEA matters to Jeanie: I value NAEA for highlighting and celebrating the importance of art education in fostering the wholistic development of children into creative, empathetic, innovative, adults that embrace a growth mindset. I also appreciate the NAHS opportunity for my students, and have created a collaborative community with other local chapters called the NAHS 6x6 Collaborative—we exhibit annually at the Heckscher Museum in Huntington, NY.
- Jeanie’s tip for art education success: My educational philosophy is rooted in my commitment to integrity, empathy, and a growth mindset. I firmly believe in building strong connections through collaboration and effective communication. Creating a comfortable environment based on trust and mutual respect is essential in any successful art classroom.
