After many years of teaching countless students, art teacher Pamela Sloan has decided to say goodbye to ETHS.

“Teaching at ETHS has been one of the most gratifying experiences of my life,” Sloan said. “I will really miss my students, particularly on the days when a student has told me I made a difference in their life.”

Sloan has been teaching here for 20 years. Over the course of here career, she has taught many art classes, from AP Art History to both Graphic Design 1 and 2.

Along with students, Sloan will also miss her colleagues.

“I don’t know if most people appreciate how incredible, compassionate, and hardworking they are.”

Sloan started teaching AP Art History five years ago, when there was no precedent for the curriculum. It is a very different class from a lot of the classes she has taught, because it focuses more on texts compared to studio art courses. Although the course is challenging, it is also one of her favorites.

“Almost every day I learn something new and make connections either from my own research or from that of my amazing students,” she says. “The constant exchange of knowledge from teacher to student, or from student to teacher, sets the class apart in my day.”
