It’s common to hear about children having the first day of school jitters, but what about the teachers? Dr. Dennis Kratz, Dean of the School of Arts and Humanities at UT Dallas, will offer a boost of exuberance to incoming Richardson Independent School District teachers on August 14 at the 50th annual New Teacher’s Luncheon.
The luncheon is hosted each year by the Richardson Chamber of Commerce to welcome new RISD teachers and to give them a chance to get acquainted with one another and the school system. This year 500-600 teachers will be in attendance. The event is scheduled to last from 11:30 am to 1 pm at the Renaissance Hotel.
Dr. Kratz’s talk, entitled “The Rose on the Machine” will center on energizing teachers to generate an atmosphere of curiosity in the classroom. Dr. Kratz said teachers’ invigorating role is often forgotten. “I really want to pump them up. This truly is a chance to speak positively about the vivifying spirit that we forget is the key to everything,” Kratz said. “Without the teachers, the education lacks vital spirit.”
Dr. Dennis M. Kratz, dean of the School of Arts and Humanities at The University of Texas at Dallas, is the 2008 recipient of the Heart For The Arts award. The honor is given annually to an outstanding community leader who has devoted time and financial resources to further the arts in the greater Richardson area.
The Richardson Arts Alliance, which sponsors the award, will recognize Kratz at the Heart For The Arts gala dinner scheduled to take place later this fall.
“On behalf of the Richardson Arts Alliance, we are thrilled to name Dennis Kratz as the recipient of the 2008 Heart For The Arts award,” said Debbie Mulvenna, chair for the gala. “His tireless efforts on behalf of the arts community and his high standards have served to elevate the quality, the quantity and the visibility of the arts.”
As dean of the School Arts and Humanities, Kratz has nurtured the development and growth of an interdisciplinary curriculum that combines visual arts, music, dance and theater with critical and creative thought. Kratz said he considers it one if his greatest priorities to enhance the role of the arts not only in education but also in the local community.
