Callie Mulcahy – North high School, Worcester
Callie Mulcahy is a second-year visual art teacher at North High School in Worcester, MA. She is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design with a M.A. in Art + Design Education (’18). Callie has taught Foundations of Art, 2D Design, and 3D Design to over 500 students in grades 9 through 12, and this year she is excited to be teaching AP Art and Design for the first time. Her classes require students to think critically about their process and intent, as well as be vulnerable in their risk-taking and experimentation with the arts. Callie enjoys taking part in various Professional Development opportunities to strengthen her teaching as well as share her practice with other educators. She is a member of a group in her district that focuses on the implementation of UDL, a part of a team writing curriculum for an art criticism course, and has presented about her use of VTS in classes at department meetings. As practicing artist, Callie is a member of the gallery ArtsWorcester and has a particular interest in printmaking and painting. Most importantly, Callie loves connecting with her students and learning about their inquiries, dreams, passions, and personalities.
