NHS art teacher honored at national conference

NORWICH – Having earned the distinguished title of the National Art Education Association’s 2015 “New York State Art Educator of the Year,” Norwich City School art teacher Kathy Pfeifer recently represented the district on a national stage.

With support and monetary assistance form the Norwich School Board, Pfeifer attended the three-day NAEA annual conference in New Orleans in March, where she received the honorable recognition. The prestigious award, determined through a peer review of nominations, honors an outstanding member from each state whose service and contribution to art education merits recognition and acclaim, according to NAEA.

In a statement, Dennis Inhulsen, NAEA President, noted that Pfeifer’s originality and commitment to the field “exemplifies the highly qualified art educators active in education today: leaders, teachers, students, scholars, and advocates who give their best to their students and the profession.”
