Academy: A Positive Note to End the Year
By Megan Figueroa
We can all agree that 2020 has been inarguably different from previous years. This spring our Academy program experienced a sudden pivot to online learning as California began to shut down around us, and for the last nine months we have witnessed the fortitude and flexibility of our staff, instructors, and students as we have all braved this uncharted territory together. While it may be tempting to focus on the negative news reels, it is difficult to do so around here when we see all the amazing accomplishes of our students and teachers. Instead check out this positive reel of student work from our last two sessions, a bright spot for all of us here at IEA!
Thank you to our Academy community for your resilience during these difficult times. It is your passion, creativity and zest for learning that has made this a year to remember.
