Christen is an excellent example of a teacher who demonstrates a consistent commitment to students, while also promoting art and art education to the school and the greater community.  This award honors her professionalism, dedication, and creativity displayed in her art classroom. Christen strives to nurture the needs and interest of students, resulting in learning, growth, and development in all areas of the curriculum.  She makes it a priority to offer students innovative and challenging activities, such as the VHS Film Festival, Scholastic Art Show, and Vermilion Schools Art Fair, which are designed to stretch their imagination and further develop their visual skills.


The award will be presented to Christen at the annual development conference of the Ohio Art Education Association on Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 6:00 PM at the Kalahari Convention Center.   Congratulations to Christen Schneid for this outstanding honor!
