Winton Woods High School (WWHS) Assistant Principal Amber Strawser says the high school is fortunate to have an art teacher like Ciro Casanova. He teaches an introductory level art class, two levels of digital photo and is the advisor for the art club at the high school. “We get great feedback from Mr. Casanova’s students about the art projects they are excited to complete in his class,” said WWHS administrative team. “He has a knack for matching his projects with the interests of his students.”
Strawser says Mr. Casanova is also a great help in other areas of the school as he uses his artistic skills to assist in any school tasks. “Mr. Casanova’s willingness to jump in and help where he sees the need has been noted and welcomed throughout the year,” said WWHS administrators. “For this reason, Ciro Casanova is Winton Woods High School’s teacher of the month for February.”
