Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts is proud to honor the outstanding work of six high school performing arts teachers with grants of $2,500 as part of the organizations annual Wolf Trap Grants for High School Performing Arts Teachers, designed to enhance curriculum and enrich classroom learning. These grants recognize the instruction and performance achievements of public high school teachers within music, dance, and theatre disciplines throughout Fairfax, Arlington, and Loudoun Counties in Virginia; Prince Georges and Montgomery Counties in Maryland; and the District of Columbia. Wolf Trap has awarded 2012-2013 Grants to Sheryl Berlin of Gaithersburg High School, Jason V. Williams of Friendly High School, Andrea Heininge of Fairfax Academy of Communications and the Arts, Phillip San Gabriel of H.D. Woodson High School, Diana Haberstick of H-B Woodlawn Secondary Program, and Kenneth David Keller of Stone Bridge High School. These funds allow each teacher to explore projects that enhance their curriculum and connect to their students through the creation of new works and initiatives, culminating with final student performances.
We are delighted to award the Wolf Trap Grant for High School Performing Arts Teachers to these outstanding and dedicated educators in the greater Washington, D.C. area, says Akua Kouyate, Wolf Traps Senior Director, Education. Wolf Trap has a longtime commitment to supporting arts education in schools throughout communities in the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia metropolitan region. These grants significantly impact students arts learning as each grantee is provided the opportunity to develop and produce expansive, meaningful arts experiences that deepen their students engagement in the creative process.
