Most of us know Nancy for her wonderful contributions to the ArtsEdNet -- such
as having developed and written much of the John Biggers "Web of Life" and
Jesus Moroles "Weaving Granite" exhibitions.
Nancy has also contributed so many fantastic ideas here on the ArtsEdNet Talk.
I have saved and used many of her suggestions, but the biggest hit with my
students is the Days of the Dead unit. Several students were already
suggesting artists for next year's ofrenda at the end of this school year;
It's really something to get them excited months in advance.
I realize many of you probably saw the write-up on Nancy in the Spring
ArtsEdNet Offline Newsletter, but I don't remember any of us referring to it
here on the ArtsEdNet Talk. I think we would be remiss in not mentioning her
recognition for her many achievements; I'm am sorry I have waited this long to
An associate of Nancy's, Sharon Warwick, who was one of the first teachers to
begin working with the North Texas Institute, was also named NAEA Middle
School Art Educator for 1997.
Again, congratulations, Nancy. Many thanks for making me a better teacher and
enriching the educational experiences of my students.
