My Name is Michael Fama, I started working at Northern in 2000 as a substitute. I was hired the following year as a Visual & Performing Arts Teacher. I earned degrees from The University of the Arts; a BFA in Painting and an MAT (Master in the Art of Teaching). I have taught middle school theater and Art 1 in the high school but primarily teach the middle school art classes. I have also advised numerous activities including serving as the middle school play and musical director which includes designing sets and planning wardrobes. I have also advised the middle school Art Club.
Teaching can be very challenging; the instruction I had received as a student is completely different than what is expected and implemented today. I have always enjoyed working with students and inspiring their mental growth. I believe teaching is not a choice but a calling. Students in my class can expect to learn concepts, techniques and core skills while forming connections that aid in many aspects of life as they move forward.
