High Point's Art Teacher Mr. Cregger, Visits The Louvre Museum of Art!
Tue, October 14, 2014
High Point Elementary School's Art Teacher, Mr. Steven Cregger, recently had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit world-famous Louvre Museum of Art, in Paris France. Mr. Cregger is the 2014 winner of The McGlothlin Award for Teaching Excellence, Elementary Level.
As part of the award, he was required to travel internationally. He started his incredible journey in Rome, Italy, where he saw The Colosseum, Vatican City, and The Sistine Chapel. Next he traveled to Florence and Venice where he walked through ancient Roman streets, took a gondola ride, and sampled some authentic Italian cuisine. Lucerne, Switzerland was the next stop on his journey. In Lucerne, he scaled Mount Stanserhorn to the elevation of 6,300 feet. The views from this height were awe-inspiring! Down the mountain to the iconic city of Paris, France was the next leg of the journey. While in Paris, Mr. Cregger ascended the Eiffel Tower, visited The Palace of Versailles, saw Notre Dame Cathedral, and spent hours in The Louvre Art Museum. The trip concluded in London, England with sightseeing of Buckingham Palace, The London Eye, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and Parliament.
During this amazing journey, Mr. Cregger was bombarded with amazing sights, tastes, and cultural experiences. He is overflowing with plans for new projects that will give his students a glimpse at what the world outside of Appalachia has to offer. Mr. Cregger would like to thank The McGlothlin Foundation for the opportunity to bring back first-hand experience, LOTS of photographs, and a renewed vigor for teaching to his students!
