Empowering students with language-based learning differences
Kristian Whipple, digital arts and elementary maker teacher, is experienced in outdoor, out-of-school, and community-based education with a specific focus on expeditionary learning with students of varied backgrounds. Before arriving at The Siena School, he managed and taught both youth and adults at New Community's ArtSpace in Washington, D.C. In addition to teaching at Siena, he works as a professional photographer. Mr. Whipple holds a B.A. in Art with a concentration in Photography from New England College and studied abroad in Quebec City and London.
Why I Teach At Siena: Each week I look forward to exploring, developing, and highlighting our students' strengths and creativity through authentic experiences in both Maker class and photography. I believe learning should be fun and exciting, and I continuously strive to foster a classroom environment that reflects that belief.
