I want to give a shout out to all the fine arts teachers but especially Sarah Martinez and fellow CTE teacher Ryan Smosna for all their welcoming and helpful advice during the last two weeks. While Ryan and I are only a department of two, being welcomed by everyone on the Fine Arts team has been a great blessing.
