As part of our Kaleidoscope series focusing on the arts in our area schools, Classic 107.3 host Julie Schuster chats with Highland Elementary art teacher Valerie Turner and fifth-grader Gabe Berteau about the school’s art program. Highland Elementary School is one of nine elementary schools in the Riverview Gardens School District.

“Gabe has moved around a great deal, but his connection to art has been a constant in his life,” Julie says. “Valerie is the kind of dedicated teacher who can really nurture that love of art for Gabe and all of her students.”
