Congratulations to Timothy Leisner and all the winners at the 28th Annual Broward County Arts Teacher Of The Year.

Teaching Artist Of The Year Award

The Arts Teacher of The Year Awards Program highlights exceptional art teachers as well as arts students in Broward County. The event was held on Wednesday, November 6 at the Broward Center For The Performing Arts.

“Art education and opportunities to explore the Arts are essential for well rounded learning.  Children, and adult learners, benefit from exposure to the Arts  and art educational opportunities.  It saddens me to think that in many schools and so called educational institutions, the arts are viewed as unimportant and not fundamental to learning.  Art Education provides learning about the Arts, creativity, reaches into other curricular learning arenas, and supports personal and social-emotional growth.  Art education is vital to the education of All.” Timothy Leistner, ED.D.
