Kathryn Tobery, Visual Art, 6-8 grades
Frederick County – Oakdale Middle School

Kathy Tobery, a Frederick County native, graduated cum laude from Towson University with a bachelor of Science Degree in Art Education and returned to teach art at Frederick County Public Schools. Mrs. Tobery believes one important way to leave no child behind is to connect each with a purpose encouraging growth, as art education does. Her proudest moments include: co-publishing “Our Heroes” featuring student art, guiding student participation in Baltimore’s Artscape and involving students in creating a silhouette collage of the City of Frederick’s clustered spires. Mrs. Tobery works with Maryland Substance Abuse Prevention and promotes diversity appreciation through cultural festivals.
