ROSEDALE, MD—Camille Gibson, an art teacher at Golden Ring Middle School and department chair and visual art lead teacher for Baltimore County’s East Zone schools, has been named Eastern Region Middle Level Art Educator of the Year by the National Art Education Association.

The program allows her students to use their artistic abilities to address issues that are relevant in their community.”
