Kathleen Brown, a Villa Maria Academy High School art teacher, has been selected as a member of the Scholastic Art Teacher Advisory Panel for the 2013-2014 school year. Brown was one of 10 teachers nationwide who earned a spot, competing against 170 teachers.
Scholastic Art is a fine-arts classroom magazine published by Scholastic. As a teacher advisor, she will offer her professional opinion as an experienced teacher about content related to Scholastic Art.
According to Scholastic Senior Editor Katie Brickner, “It was a tough competition. We received an overwhelming response from teachers expressing interest in joining our team. Kate’s enthusiasm, background, dedication to her students and willingness to provide honest feedback about Scholastic Art set Kate apart and made her an outstanding candidate.”
Brown, who has been employed by Villa Maria since 1994 and teaches a broad range of classes from freshman art to Advanced Placement studio art to ceramics, is honored to serve on the panel.
“I am thrilled to be part of such a prestigious group of colleagues and that I was considered for inclusion,” she said.
In 2011, Brown was awarded the Citadel Heart of Learning High School teacher of the year, an honor which recognizes teachers who go above and beyond the call of duty in the classroom. Most recently in 2012, Brown was selected to speak at the National Art Education Association (NAEA) Convention in New York City.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
