El Dorado High School Teacher Wins Grant to Enrich IB Curriculum

Candace Printz, a visual arts teacher at El Dorado High School, was awarded a grant by the National Society of High School Scholars’ to enhance the delivery of International Baccalaureate courses for the 2017-2018 school year.

“My students and I want to make a difference in our community by cleaning up the land, educating adults and children alike about the decisions they make, and raising awareness about our local non-profits,” Printz said. “We are doing this by cleaning up four miles of land, inviting local non-profits and the community to help, and turning the trash into artwork.”

Printz is one of 20 educators from 11 states, and the only one in Texas, to receive the $500 IB grant.

The grant will allow her to sponsor upcycling workshops and teach students, parents, teachers and community members how to create something useful out of discarded materials.

Printz, with the help of her students, pioneered various environmental programs such as the innovative It’s Your World community project and the Metamorphosis Trash to Treasure Art Contest.

“International Baccalaureate teachers are challenging our students to strive for excellence and our organization is pleased to be able to enhance their efforts,” said NSHSS president James Lewis, in a press release.”

Students in the El Dorado International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme are committed to achieving academic success and serving their community in pursuit of obtaining a higher education and becoming active participants in today’s global society.
