Idaho Art Education Association

***IAEA MEMBER SPOTLIGHT***

Alison Noble, HS art teacher & IAEA secretary, has received THREE awards this fall from her community. She is the recipient of The Commitment to Community award which values those with disabilities as important contributors in our community and the Building Bridges award from the Community Partnerships of Idaho. Alison feels it takes a collaboration to make a positive difference. It’s important to take the time to really see all our students, especially those on a challenging spectrum to provide the scaffolding and support, and to teach them that their voices and creative contributions to our community matter.

The third award: Breaking Boundaries honors educators for actively & openly celebrating diversity. It represents the welcoming respect she tries to extend all her students. Alison is an art educator extraordinaire who truly cares about humanity.

WAY TO GO- ALISON!!!!!
