Return to Awards Index
From early on in her long and distinguished career, Ann Marie Costa had a vision of a school where the arts would be an integral part of the curriculum.In her letter of recommendation for the MAAE award, Superintendent of Revere Public Schools Carol A. Tye, a fellow teacher of Ms. Costa's for many years at Revere High School, recalls that they initially taught in isolation from their colleagues in other disciplines, but later began to explore ways that children could learn through "connectedness."Classroom content could be taught with an eye towards integrating themes from many disciplines and teachers could work together, each bringing contributions from their own area of expertise, with the mutual goal of enhancing the student's learning experience.With this philosophy and with her strong commitment to the arts behind her, Ann Marie Costa has transformed the A.C. Whelan School in the four years since she was appointed principal.Where there was initially one music and one art teacher, there are now five.But even more significant is what is evident to any visitor to the school -- that the halls are filled with the colors of student artwork in every media, and with the sounds of children singing and playing musical instruments.
Costa has created a learning environment in which the opportunities for students to partake in arts-related activities are diverse and numerous.In addition, she is committed to the professional development of her staff and seeks opportunities for them to take on leadership roles.She actively works towards integrating the arts in all schools, recently serving as administrative facilitator for the DOE Education Reform Team Fellowship in which Art and Core curriculum teachers from different schools work together and share strategies for strengthening student learning.She is administrative leader for the Harvard MCAS Team which worked to develop training opportunities for staff to improve student performance on the MCAS tests.In spite of her many administrative commitments both inside and outside the Whelan School, she still knows the names of all the students in the building and delights in reciting the individual accomplishments of all her students and teachers.
Under Costa's guidance, the A.C. Whelan School has achieved three MAAE awards of excellence this year, including the School of Excellence Award.Largely due to her demonstrated success in creating a strong academic program where the arts are held in as high esteem as all content areas, the replacement school planned for the Whelan School will have an arts theme, ensuring that students will continue to reap the benefits from the inclusion of the arts as a part of their school culture and curriculum for many years to come.Ann Marie Costa earned her Bachelor of Sciences in Elementary Education with a minor in Art Education from Salem State College.She received her Masters of Sciences degree from Lesley University in Education/ Integrated Arts in Education, and a C.A.G.S. in Educational Leadership from Salem State College.
