Battle Ground art teacher honored

The Columbian

BATTLE GROUND — For the fifth time in the last seven years, Battle Ground Public Schools art teacher Becky Broyles has been recognized as one of the best in the state. Broyles, who teaches high school art classes at River HomeLink, was named the Washington Art Education Association Secondary Art Teacher of the Year for 2021.

At Battle Ground, she has developed a student-choice art program, modeled as a working design studio, served as part of the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction’s Arts Cadre, and helped to craft guidance on reopening arts programs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This award means the world to me,” Broyles said. “It is a chance to share with others the value of building relationships, curating connections, pouring your heart into this profession, and allowing students to follow their own passions.”
