We are thrilled to announce that one of our educators, Elvin Herrera, has been featured on the Durham Public Schools website. We are incredibly proud of him and his accomplishments!
Elvin has been teaching for a decade, and he currently teaches art at Eastway Elementary School in Durham. Originally from Honduras, Elvin is passionate about the visual arts, and he has been able to incorporate this passion into his teaching. As a result, he has developed strong relationships with his students, and he has even been able to showcase their artwork in museums and hotels.
Over the previous summer, Elvin created a beautiful mural at Eastway Elementary School that showcases the diversity and creativity of the school’s students.
Elvin’s dedication to teaching and the arts is truly inspiring. He founded an organization in Honduras called Empower Honduras, which helps orphaned children learn English and life skills. Elvin sees his role as a teacher as social work, and he wants to help his students find their purpose in life and become leaders who can make the world a better place.
