Myleen Bass

Southwestern Elementary School Art 

As an Art teacher and an Art Club leader, I value greatly the mixture of students and Art, which benefit the community on a daily basis. To be a part of learning in any student's life is a great gift to me as a teacher and to the community as a whole. Everyone benefits when students learn Art. The cycle of Art in student's lives brings culture and in-depth thought to all other subjects around them, which positively affects learning. This enables Art to link student-to-teacher, teacher-to-parent, and parent-to-administration, which then continues on into the community.
