Teachers Make the Most of the Summer

This summer, art teacher Mr. Gary Schwartz, received the excellent news that one of his pieces was selected to be in a group show at gallery in the heart of DUMBO on Front Street. “CYCLONE,” pictured above, will be featured in a magazine accompanying the exhibition with a photo of Mr. Schwartz and his website.

The show will have publicity, blog and social media attention, will be on the gallery walk tours, and will be up for one month from October 6th through November 6th. Very excited for this opportunity, Mr. Schwartz proclaims “This is just the beginning my friends, at age 54 I am an emerging artist!”

In July, French and history teacher, Ms. Emily-Greta Tabourin, spent some time in The Netherlands where she was house-sitting for friends on a houseboat while patiently awaiting the release of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.”

Ms. Ruby Disko also had a busy summer, travelling out west to visit her family in Portland, OR. with her ever present hiking buddy, Ms. Janine Turcio. They rock climbed, went white water rafting (in the rain), and did lots of hiking, backpacking and camping as well, getting pumped up for HIKING CLUB this fall!


Besides her time hiking in Oregon, Ms. Turcio also spent four days hiking 45 miles of the Appalachian Trail in Pennsylvania. But Ms. Turcio didn’t spend all of her summer hiking accross the country. She and Ms. Disko met up once more to do some travelling in South America together (no, they didn’t go to the Olympics). Ms. Turcio and Ms. Disko toured Colombia and had an excellent time traversing through the Amazonian jungle. Talk about adventure!
