Local Teacher Makes National Headlines

A local teacher is taking local classroom lessons to a national level. Sherman fine arts teacher Beth Hubbert is writing for a national magazine.

The Perrin Elementary School teacher is published in the August-September issue of "School Arts," a magazine for art educators of all levels. In her article, Hubbert highlights a quilt art project she's used in kindergarten classes for nearly 13 years. She says the lesson increases motor and math skills and brings the youngest students up to speed on basic kindergarten skills.

"School Arts" magazine has commissioned Hubbert to write two more articles to be published in future issues.
