Art teacher says a fond goodbye

-A +A
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the community of Lincoln and all the students I have had the pleasure of working with for the past 30 years. Teaching art in this community for three decades was my dream job and a true pleasure. I have had amazing support, not only from parent clubs but from Gladding McBean and Teichert Construction. When I began my teaching career at Glen Edwards Middle School in 1981, I was surprised that there was no established ceramics programs in the district. Through the generosity of the Parent Club, I was able to purchase two potter’s wheels and a kiln and start the first program at GEMS. Fifteen years later, when I transferred to Lincoln High School, I was again able to start another ceramics program. With a generous donation from Gladding McBean, as well as support from Principal Dave Butler and the LHS Parent Club, I was able to purchase six potter’s wheels and two kilns. In addition to the high school ceramics classes, I was able to start the Lincoln High School Art Gallery through a grant I wrote to Teichert Construction Company. I am very proud upon my retirement of these accomplishments that I was able to leave the students of Western Placer. It has been a pleasure to have served this community and am looking forward to seeing many of former students as they graduate and assume their roles as valuable members of this community. I will truly miss the students and my colleagues as I begin the next phase of my life journey. Thank you. Nancy Steuck, Lincoln
