Grade 1: Masks of the World
Students start back at my school this week (teachers started back last week). This year I am really excited to collaborate with the dance teacher to integrate my world masks lesson with her dance classes. These connections are so important for student engagement and learning!

For over fifteen years, Margaurita has been teaching art.
Margaurita’s approach to teaching is that art is a universal language, open to anyone interested in expressing themselves through creative exploration. She utilizes a mix of teaching philosophies depending on the needs of her students. She has studied a range of educational theories, including Reggio Emilia, Montessori, and Differentiated Learning, among others, and chooses parts of each to incorporate into her teaching style. She believes in teaching towards an appreciation of art and an understanding of the creative process more than a focus on the end product.
The two passions of her life—art and teaching—are fully entwined.
