    Shout Out To Mid City’s Art Teacher Ms. Lewis

     

    Ms. Lewis was featured in the “MidCoast Fine Arts Newsletter”  

    Latoya D. Lewis has a studio area she calls Art of the Spirit as part of a small co-op of galleries on the Bucktown second floor. Currently she’s an art teacher at Mid City High School in Davenport. Her sense of the importance of teachers is clear from her own experience growing up.

    She credits her first and fourth grade teachers with recognizing and encouraging her love of art. She was one of four students in 4th grade given the opportunity to be transported by bus for part of the day to experience a new state of the art elementary fine arts academy in Chicago. 

    In high school, she was taken aside by Mr. Isaiah Curry to encourage a focus in architectural engineering. He personally helped her pursue her education. However, her passion for teaching art prevailed. She studied secondary art education at Southern University and A&M College and took additional art courses at Louisiana State University. She received her master’s degree at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. That importance of teachers has remained in her heart; she and fellow students are organizing a scholarship in the name

    Mid City Math Teacher wins Award

    Mid City math teacher Liz Mastalio was awarded the Dr. Robert E. and Phyllis M. Yager Exemplary Teaching Recognition Award from the University of Northern Iowa College of Humanities, Arts, and Sciences. The award recognizes two UNI alumna each year who are nominated by a professor for demonstrating excellence in K-12 education. Liz was nominated by Catherine Miller, math education professor.
