Georgia Stockdale

Formerly, City Collegiate Public Charter School
Washington, D.C.

Georgia Stockdale taught visual arts at City Collegiate Public Charter School after many years of teaching at Murch Elementary School, DCPS. She is one of the few art teachers who attended the CASE Summer Institute for Math and Science at the Carnegie Institute in Washington, D.C. In 2004, Georgia was chosen as a teacher advisor for The Phillips Collection's special exhibition, Calder/Miró, a role in which she worked with teachers across the D.C. metropolitan area to learn new ways to connect art and science.

After attending the Paul Klee Summer Teaching Institute in summer 2006, Georgia was selected to become a Paul Klee mentor teacher. While attending the institute, she and colleague Alison Squire formulated an integrated teaching unit based on what they had learned about Paul Klee, designed to connect the artist's work to their students' sense of identity during adolescence. In Georgia's art class, students created self-portraits inspired by Klee's art and process. Students then wrote about their self image, the image they present to the community, and changes they have seen in themselves.
