North Forsyth Art Teacher Still at Work

Officially, Christina Parrish’s year as an art teacher at North Forsyth High was done. Yet there she was in a meeting room working on a mural of the North Forsyth logo.

Asked why she was working on her own time, she said that she is expecting and figures, that while she still has the energy, she should take care of such projects. 
This will be the first child for Parrish and her husband, Griff Parrish. 

They are going to have a son.

Making Art at Walkertown High

Since October, Street and her students have been turning the Wolfpack snack bar in the cafeteria into a work of art.

During the summit, Street came in to put the finishing touches on the art.

While she was working, Principal Misty Walker stopped by to say hello.

Wiley Teachers Spending Two Weeks at National Air and Space Museum

Three science teachers from Wiley Magnet Middle School – Seth Henley, Yasmine McWilliams, and Betty Jo Moore – have been selected to participate in the Teacher Innovator Institute at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington.

The inaugural Teacher Innovator Institute will teach middle-school educators how to bring the museum experience into their classrooms by exploring connections between informal STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education and authentic learning. The two-week immersive program from July 9-20 will included a total of 30 teachers from across the country.

The program will include hands-on activities, museum tours, behind-the-scenes museum experiences, visits to other museums and group work. Teachers will benefit from the expertise of museum educators and content experts and be able to use aerospace science, history and technology to shape their ideas about authentic learning and bring informal education techniques to their classrooms.

Educators in the program have committed two weeks each summer for three summers. During those two weeks, they will actively participate in sessions led by Smithsonian staff and guests and propose and complete an independent project.
