Jaimee Taborda – Oxford High School, Oxford
Jaimee Taborda cares deeply about instilling the values of artistic thinking in her students through the Teaching for Artistic Behavior (TAB) approach to art education. A high school art educator of eleven years, she bridges contemporary art practices with current education concepts to provide a rich and diverse learning environment. She continuously challenges herself to learn more, both as an educator, through professional development, and as an artist, through studio classes. In addition to working as an artist and teaching full time at Oxford High School in Oxford, MA, Jaimee currently serves as department head of Unified Arts, adviser for art club and the National Art Honor Society, Adjunct Professor at Gordon College, and the new Secretary for the MAEA. Jaimee is passionate about art education and strives to instill a love for the arts in all of her students.
