SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENTS
TEACHER OF THE YEAR
It is with great pride and excitement that we announce that Samantha Stankiewicz has been named Somerville's Teacher of the Year!á Samantha Stankiewicz started as an art teacher in the Ridgewood Public Schools in 1996.á After one year at GWMS she came to Somerville School in the fall of 1997 as a permanent substitute and was hired later that year.á She feels grateful to her high school art teacher, Dennis Carroll, at Ridgewood High School.á He helped her to make sure her portfolio was ready to apply to art schools and she began her journey as an artist/ educator at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn with a major in sculpture and a minor in art education. Mr. Carroll then hired Mrs. Stankiewicz and he and Denise Sivulich(RHS) really helped to guide her as a teacher.á Mrs. Stankiewicz believes in teaching the process of becoming an artist.á This means showing students how to use concepts such as the elements and principles of art and using famous artists as examples but with an open-ended process that gives them autonomy in their work.á She feels incredibly lucky to work at Somerville School and feels that it is a very special place.á She feels so honored to have been named the Teacher of the Year and thanks everyone who has shown her kindness and support during her career.
