Art Teacher Wins Award


By Emily Wang, Online Arts Editor

Ceramics and Art Department Resource Teacher Brendan Roddy was selected as Montgomery County Public School’s Secondary Art Teacher of the Year.

MCPS Fine Arts Curriculum Specialist, Linda Adams, nominated Roddy for the honor, and Principal Joan Benz affirmed the nomination.

“I am very thankful to get the chance to teach something I am passionate about and love every day to students that enjoy learning,” Roddy said. “This award is not something that teachers seek out or look to achieve; we teach and strive to improve because we enjoy the process and want to grow.”
