Nicole Mohrey, of Eastern Center for Arts and Technology, is this week’s #TeacherTuesday. A commercial art educator for eleventh and twelfth graders, and a member of the Eastern Montgomery County Educators Association, she resisted her “family’s efforts to push me into teaching.” Apparently, her family was correct though. Nicole says, “I loved my career as a designer and then art director. After falling into teaching later, I loved it and found it even more rewarding than seeing my designs on a billboard or the side of a tractor trailer!”
And this creative powerhouse is delighted that her students have found each other. Nicole explains, “They come from different high schools, backgrounds and skills but they come here and find a common goal of an aspiring future in the creative arts.” What’s more, “They grow and learn from each other, motivate each other, and most importantly, become their own support group.” She adds that they all “have dreams of working hard in a career they love.”
Let us know who else is painting the world a bright color with their skills and passion for teaching, and we’ll feature them in an upcoming #TeacherTuesday.
