Mary Pressley: It’s About Time

To the editor:

I was thrilled to read in Saturday’s paper that our elementary school children finally will get more art classes each week.

I agree with those quoted in the article who said that exposure to the arts increases a child’s ability to learn in all academic areas. This is a real step forward for our school district.

And speaking of Moffat County’s elementary art program, we have exceptionally great teachers in Martha Laliberte and Steve Martinson. Both teachers inspire students to love art, but even more importantly, they affirm and build confidence in their students.

I only wish my own children could have spent more time learning from them.
