Maggie Leysath

Fine Arts Chair & Teacher, Onalaska ISD

Peering down the Rabbit Hole: An Adventure in Full Art Integration

Maggie Leysath's career focuses on making the positive school experience accessible and enjoyable for all students. This desire has led her into art education research and curriculum development designed to include students who are considered reluctant learners. An educational philosophy of inclusion rather than exclusion, creativity and originality rather than conformity and standardization informs her pedagogical research. It was this desire that led to her and her co-author to conduct the study reported in November's Art Education article, “An Adventure in Full Art Integration." This research focuses on the effects of full art integration in the core classroom instruction. Maggie believes that integrating art into core area instruction is one path art educators can take as they seek to become educational leaders in their schools, districts and communities. She teaches secondary art for grades 7–12, teaches college courses at a local junior college and operates a local pottery studio.

Chad Bronowski

Science Educator, A&M Consolidated High School, College Station, Texas

Peering down the Rabbit Hole: An Adventure in Full Art Integration

Chad Bronowski is a veteran science educator with six years of high school science teaching experience. He graduated from Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences (with Departmental Honors). After college, he began his science education career. He completed his Master of Education in Administration from Lamar University in December 2015. His M.Ed. degree required an action research project, and is where art integration into a core class began. With his experience throwing pottery at a local Onalaska art studio since 2012, he utilized glaze formulation to teach three important and difficult chemistry concepts—significant figures, the mole, and stoichiometry. During this research, he realized the power and impact of art integration in the science classroom. He is currently teaching Chemistry and Advanced Biotechnology at A&M Consolidated High School, College Station, Texas.
