Marcella Cua, Art, Columbus Briggs High School.

Last year she took the initiative to add a course to our school, AP Art History, to where she had to be trained over the summer and receive additional professional development. She also partnered with the Columbus Museum of Art to allow students to gain different exposures to art.

She allows the students to showcase their work throughout the school and district wide. Her students not only learn in her class but they take away the appreciation of art to incorporate into further education.
