Two Teachers Named Lilly Endowment Teacher Creativity Fellowship Recipients
We are #DecaturProud to announce that two of our MSD Decatur Township Teachers have been named as recipients of the Teacher Creativity Fellowship Program, 2023 by Lilly Endowment Inc.
Congratulations to Ms. Tracey Krell, Graphic Art Teacher at Decatur Central High School and Mrs. Diane Stebbe, Music Teacher at West Newton Elementary! Both Ms. Krell and Mrs. Stebbe are now two-time Lilly Endowment Fellowship recipients.
Ms. Krell’s Project, entitled “Cairo to Chinotimba,” was written, “to renew love of art and culture by traveling from Northern Africa to South Africa; explore ancient mysteries, exciting safaris and meet with indigenous people.” Ms. Krell shared that her inspiration for the project is her students. She strives to learn about each student as an individual, including their cultural heritage, so that they can learn and grow together. Ms. Krell shared that her students were very helpful in offering suggestions and advice in planning the project.
Mrs. Stebbe’s project is titled, “Music Composition Inspiration: Following the Footsteps of a Child Genius by Tracing Mozart’s Grand Tour.” She will, “gain inspiration to write a piece of vocal music in the style of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart by traveling the three-year itinerary he took as a child, experiencing the sights he saw and the places where he performed.” Mrs. Stebbe pledges to bring back her new learning and share with students: “I want to provide an opportunity for my students to do some composing of their own and maybe find some hidden talent among the students of West Newton Elementary.” We can all look forward to a performance of Mrs. Stebbe’s original composition at West Newton in the Spring of 2024!
