RE: Shelley S. Curtiss
To Whom It May Concern:
I have had the pleasure of co-teaching with Ms. Curtiss on two occasions in the recent past. The first occasion was on the Alaskan Pribilof islands of St. Paul and St. George, in the Bering Sea, where we were employed as artists-in-residence by the Alaska State Council on the Arts. The second occasion was in Joseph, Oregon where we were employed as drawing and 3-D design instructors by Blue Mountain Community College.
In my observation of her classroom activities, I was particularly impressed with Shelley's abilities to communicate at all student levels, and her commitment to bringing contemporary ideas and approaches to her classroom. The students really respect her as an instructor and like her as a person.
