Faculty Highlights 2018-2019

        • Art teacher, Donna Downs, was one of 12 middle school teachers chosen nationally to attend a STEAM class at Yellowstone National Park, for five days this past August. Led by a Yellowstone park ranger and instructor from the Yellowstone Forever group, the focus of the class centered on connecting art with science through hikes, and testing of the park's indigenous thermal features. By the end of the five days, each participant completed a total of ten art projects which were displayed at a mini art show on site. 
        • Ms. Deb DeHart had a theatrical summer teaching four classes in theatre and musical theatre, adapting "The Dancing Princesses", a musical, to a cast of 14 who toured the show locally for four days. In addition, Ms. DeHart was also busy writing an original play for Halloween, "Things That Go Bump in the Night", based on Northern Delaware ghost stories and eyewitness accounts regarding the Brothers house on the St. Edmond's campus, given by Brother Joseph Ash and Brother David Parrish. The play will be presented here at SEA for the student body and parents on Halloween day.
        • Lower Form Interventionist Jocelyn Delaney and third grade teacher Erin McArthur are both working toward graduate degrees at the University of Delaware for a Masters of Education in Literacy.  Both teachers took ther first course this summer, Digital Literacies, about which they provided professional development here at St. Edmond's Academy for the entire faculty in August.
