Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- Fairfield Magnet School for Arts and Science is a designated STEAM school.
STEAM schools focus on science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Each student has an the opportunity to have arts integrated into every subject.
This is Kimi Daly's4th year teaching art at Fairfield Magnet School. As an art teacher she appreciates all the mediums from painting, photography, ceramics, sculpture andprintmaking.
She's always had a love for art.
"I started out by sketching people during church in elementary school," Daly explained. "My art was used in every school subject as I found ways to incorporate something artistic into most of my core class-work and projects. It made school more fun for me to do something I loved doing while still getting the job done in Science, Math and Language Arts."
Mrs. Daly took a ten year hiatus from the classroom and became an entrepreneur, owning her own arts studio.
The call to the classroom was to strong to resist and she is now back making a difference in the lives of children every day.
