Cabrini teacher studying at Smithsonian this summer

Michelle Fortier, chair of Cabrini High School’s English Department, has been accepted to the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Summer Institute: Teaching the Humanities through Art in Washington, D.C. 

During her summer at the institute, Fortier ‘97 will learn about American art from professionals and learn how to integrate art into her daily teaching lessons. She will be joining educators from across the country to learn about the connections between American art, social studies, history, and English/language arts. After the institute, Fortier will be able to stay connected to her new network of colleagues and museum staff throughout the upcoming year. 
Said Fortier, “I am so excited I was chosen for this opportunity because I understand the importance of the arts in every subject that we teach at school, and I am excited to have the opportunity to be able to bring new knowledge that I will gain from the institute to my future classes.” 
According to the institute, they were only able to accept less than half of all participants, which shows Fortier’s acceptance is a testament to the strength of her application, her hard work and determination, and her many qualifications.
