Ms. Neilson's PhilosophyThe teaching of every core academic subject contributes to developing some aspect of human nature. Math and science teach biological and intellectual parts of our nature. PE develops the physical characteristics. The visual and performing arts nurture creativity and aesthetics. Education provides an ideal forum for the integration of core subjects contributing to the development of multiple human characteristics. When we understand the artistic nature of humanity and are willing to teach and develop that aspect, we will be compelled to educate our students in the arts and they will not be aesthetically underdeveloped.
