Barnesville School Honors Retiring Art Teacher

June 10, 2016

Arts & Academics Night is Barnesville’s year-end showcase of students’ work across the arts and sciences. This year, the assembly honored Mary Waldhorn who is retiring after teaching art at Barnesville for the past 22 years. Mary was celebrated as a champion of arts integration and diversity who leaves a lasting legacy of cross-curricular collaboration and global citizenship education.

   Carrying artwork made in Mrs. Waldhorn’s classes, students opened Arts & Academics Night by singing, "Let There Be Peace on Earth, and Let it Begin With Me" in recognition of the School’s Peace Week tradition that Waldhorn helped to institute.

   “When I think about Mary, the first word that comes to mind is passion,” said Head of School Susanne Johnson. “She cares deeply, not only about her work, but about each of her students. She has been a strong advocate, mentor, and advisor. She lives the essence of our mission by providing a supportive environment that brings out the excellence in each individual.”

   Johnson noted that the eighth grade art curriculum is a technical ninth-grade level class and remarked, “Mrs. Waldhorn exemplifies Barnesville’s cross-curricular approach, fully integrating the arts to support and enrich core classes.”

   Before presenting the retiring teacher with a gift Johnson concluded: “Mary will be missed dearly, but her legacy will live on forever here at the Barnesville School.”
