Jocelyn Vache has been an educator for nineteen years, the last twelve of which in the Boston Public Schools, and the last five as a Credit-Bearing Teacher of Record for theBPS Arts Expansion Initiative. In her own classroom, she currently teaches digital literacy and computer science, but in other years has taught visual art, French, and English as a Second Language (ESL). She’s also served as a member of her Local Cultural Council. The intersection of linguistic, technological, and visual communication fascinates her. Jocelyn has been been making and appreciating art ever since she can remember. She cannot imagine having had a single day in high school or college without art class. Serving as the liaison between the high school she teaches at and local arts partners, whose studios and museums around the city serve as an extension of her students’ school day, is one of the most rewarding parts of her job. Like her teenage self, she couldn’t imagine her students’ lives without access to study the art of their choice: fine arts, media arts, dance, music, or theater.
