Hannah H is Guest Teacher on Latham’s Virtual ‘Animals of the World’ Drawing Class
Latham Centers’ Outreach Team is so grateful to Hannah H., a recent Guest Teacher in their Virtual Animals of the World Drawing Class!
Every Tuesday at 3 pm EST, Latham’s Admissions and Outreach team members Patrice Carroll, Katrina Fryklund, and Brittni Kliment instruct students with Prader-Willi syndrome around the country through an online lesson about animals of the world. These animals are cute, majestic, silly, or extraordinary! On Tuesday, January 19th, Hannah H., a longtime attendee of Latham’s virtual community, led her peers through a lesson about unicorns, her favorite animal.
Director of National Outreach Katrina Fryklund said the drawing class led by Hannah was excellent! “Hannah knew in advance of this surprise lesson for her peers and took her job very seriously. She researched unicorn facts and wrote down the most interesting information that her friends needed to know. Then, she and her mother typed them on the computer for practice. With glee, Hannah instructed students and helped me teach everyone how to draw a unicorn, step by step.”
Katrina added that the team is so proud of Hannah for her hard work over these last few months. She has made new friends and thrived in our virtual programming, including taking on a leadership role. Meanwhile, she has been working on being her best self, focusing on health and wellness and losing almost 60 pounds, and sharing her happiness and unique abilities with all of us.
Congratulations and thank you, Hannah! You are an all-star, and it is our privilege to participate in Latham’s Virtual Programming with you!
