WHS Art Teacher Honored

"Since 1991, I have been the Arts Education Program Manager for the state arts agency. I have encountered excellent and dedicated teachers in all of the artistic disciplines. Georgiana stands head and shoulders above many for several reasons. Georgiana does not teach because she needs a job. She teaches because she loves and cares for her students and the community. She has high expectations for her students and challenges them to be the best learners. She always refers to them as her “art scholars.” She fuels their curiosity and encourages safe exploration, self-discovery and the right to express their individual artistic voice. She is kindly demanding and nurturing. She is consistent in teaching the core, systematically and sequentially, and by doing so, her students increase their knowledge and skills in the visual arts, moving away from the single project model used by so many instructors." ~ Jean Tokuda Irwin, Utah Department of Heritage & Arts
