I am very excited to welcome all of you to my classroom during the 2018 - 19 school year! This is my seventh year at NHS and I am looking forward to seeing many familiar faces as well getting to know some new ones! I am excited to see the artwork you'll create. This summer I was fortunate to go to my favorite vacation spot, Canada, not once but twice! In July we went to Ottawa and in August we were in Montreal. We saw so many new things as well as revisited a ton of locations we already knew we loved. Even more exciting has been watching our baby girl, Maya Zi Wai, grow from a little baby to a toddler! She turned one in October and I don't know where the time has gone! She is walking everywhere, saying "Hi" to anyone (or animal) that will look her way, and she's busy exploring her world.
ABOUT MRS. WONG Before coming to NHS I spent many years studying art and working in the non-profit sector. I graduated from Rhode Island College with a dual degree Bachelor's in Art History and Film Studies with a minor in Studio Art. I then went on to receive my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fine Arts (Painting and Printmaking) from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University (now named the Lesley College of Art and Design). After working at a non-profit arts organization for a few years I decided to go after the dream I had since a young child - to be an art educator. For me, the art room was always a place I felt the most comfortable. I was able to be creative and express myself in ways that were interesting and exciting to me. Art was always my favorite subject and I really wanted to instill that appreciation in many other generations of kids. I received my Master of Arts in Teaching, Art Education from Tufts University in partnership with The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (SMFA). Before starting my first year at NHS, I spent the summer teaching 7 - 14 year olds in the Summer Studio Sessions at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA). I am ACA certified in Photoshop CS6, Illustrator CC 2015 and InDesign CC 2015 and I'm an Adobe Classroom Leader. Being an educator has been an incredible journey and one of the best jobs I have ever had. I love seeing the work my students make and building relationships with them and seeing them grow as artists.
