April 2013 PAESTAR

This month, we recognize Cathy Bateman, Chairperson for The Fine Arts and School Technology Leader with the School District of Philadelphia.  In the words of her nominator: "Cathy has been teaching for many years, in both art and technology education, most recently at Frankford High School where she teaches art, ceramics and serves as the school technology leader and fine arts coordinator. Her student's work using reclaimed materials have been transformed into permanent exhibits at The School District of Philadelphia headquarters, and she continues to complete projects like this with her students. This summer she was a participant in ESSP's energy workshop at Penn State as well as awarded a fellowship by the Smithsonian's National Gallery of Art to attend a workshop where she worked on turning STEM into STEAM through Impressionism."

Congratulations, Cathy - you are clearly a PAESTAR!
