Trinity Prize FOR EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING
Congratulations to Lacey Trevino, art teacher at Dr. Bernard Harris Middle School. She is the recipient of the 2012-2013 NEISD Trinity Prize for Excellence in Teaching Award.
“I have the best job. I feel blessed that I was given the opportunity to use art as a way to engage my students. Art is an experience. It is a journey toward understanding one’s self and inching towards something special. It is meaningful and important. I want to lead others towards a path that will ignite the strength of a well rounded education. It is my philosophy that the most successful people are those who can take a creative approach to problem solving.
In art, students learn how to view the world in a different light. They see things differently, they process information differently, and they have the ability to creatively solve problems that are put in their way. As a middle school art teacher, I am not trying to train the future artists of the world, but trying to plant creativity as a backbone in their lives.”
