William is an engaging instructor who combines classroom technology, the iPad, audio and hands-on activities with his stellar knowledge of art to create an exciting classroom. He challenges his students with in-depth curriculum that keeps them focused and interested, and as a result, they work hard for him.
This past year William redesigned class projects and rubrics to be more practical and comprehensive. His teaching style is student focused to ensure they understand the concepts of the media before they start working on projects. William is also very active serving on different committees at Northeastern and within the local community.
