Congratulations to Shorewood teacher Angela Hayes, the latest winner of our WEAC Badger Red for Public Ed promotion! The honor goes to WEAC members in appreciation for their dedication to students. Recipients are treated to a UW Badger athletic event.
Angela will get VIP treatment at the February 18 UW Badger basketball game against Illinois at the Kohl Center in Madison.
Angela, a WEAC and Shorewood Education Association (SEA) member, is an Elementary Art Teacher, entering her 12th year in the profession. Currently teaching art to Atwater Elementary students, Angela has always been a proud union member, even as a part-time educator.
“I love my job, my students and families, staff and community that supports the Arts,” Angela says. “I believe that a visual arts program should be child-centered and developmentally appropriate, providing sensory engaging opportunities for children to tell their stories that fosters aesthetic behaviors and lifelong inquiry.”
Angela shared the picture below of herself and her students when they toured the Elizabeth Murphy House in Shorewood, designed by Wisconsin’s Frank Lloyd Wright as part of her Fourth Grade Art Curriculum.
