LEVEL: Medium Crossword by Myles Mellor and Susan Flanagan life & arts the lake forest leader | February 16, 2017 | 15 D67 Talent Show helps teachers shine outside the classroom Katie Copenhaver Freelance Reporter More than 30 teachers participated in the District 67/Spirit of 67 Faculty Talent Show on Friday, Feb. 10, at Deer Path Middle School. Teachers sang, danced, played music, and performed improv and acrobatics, drawing cheers and laughs from students and parents and their colleagues. “I think this is the most involvement I’ve seen in one of our faculty talent shows,” said Deer Path East Principal Tom Cardamone. “I couldn’t be happier with the success of this event.” The show’s director and Deer Path’s music teacher Jean Hersey echoed him. “I’m thrilled with the amount of participation. It is a unifying experience.” The most poignant moment came in the introduction when Hersey and chorus teacher Ben Gray dedicated this year’s show to Scott Bliler, a seventh- and eighth-grade special education teacher, who passed away a few days earlier after a long illness. They sang “Amazing Grace” as a tribute. The students gathered with excitement to see their teachers, many of whom do not teach performing arts, in a different context. Some of the highlights were the opening instrumental of the “Muppet Show” theme song by the pit orchestra and the opening song by the 21-person staff choir of Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror.” Other ensemble performances included “Shakin’ it Through the Ages,” a black-lit dance with the teachers wearing glow-inthe-dark clothing to a medley of songs like “Twist and Shout” by the Beatles to “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift. The “Dr. Know-It-All” improv troupe of five made three appearances, answering audience questions with absurd responses, taking audience suggestions for Barbara Falk (far right) accompanies music instructors Corey Ames (center) and Ben Grey on piano as they play “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” on clarinet during District 67/Spirit of 67 Faculty Talent Show on Friday, Feb. 10, at the Deer Path Middle School.

The most inclusive project was the district video which captured teachers, administrators, and cafeteria, custodial and grounds staff members dancing in classrooms, hallways, offices and dining areas. The video was accompanied by Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” from the movie, “Trolls.” One comical part of the video was Superintendent Michael Simeck receiving dance lessons from a more rhythmic staff member. At the end was a still photo of Bliler surrounded by a few colleagues, captioned “always in our hearts.” There were also several solo or small group performances by faculty members. Mark Mosias, a fifth-grade math and science teacher, sang “Proud of Your Boy” from Disney’s “Aladdin.” Mosias said he has talked to his students about his singing background as a participant in his high school and college musicals, plays and choirs, but he explains to them that he can’t sing in class. This finally gave them a chance to hear him, for which they gave him enthusiastic applause. This is Mosias’ first year teaching at Deer Path and participating in the talent show. “It’s wonderful to have so much community support,” Mosias said. Cardamone has a similar background of performing since he was in seventh grade in school musicals and plays. He sang “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds to the piano accompaniment of Lino Cisternino. Hersey, a classically trained opera singer, also had her moment with “Why Do They Shut Me Out of Heaven?” by Aaron Copland. She sang opera professionally for several years in Europe before coming home to the United States and beginning a career as a music teacher. This is her 20th year in the district, where she has participated in every one of these faculty shows and has directed a couple previous ones. The talent show culminated with “One Singular ‘Swimstation’ ” featuring 12 staff members, which blended the title song from “A Chorus Line” and the traditional song, “Soul Bossa Nova” with synchronized “swimming” using the school’s new projection The Improv group Dr. Know-It-All imagines a fictional trip to Switzerland.

Not to be overlooked was the Deer Path Middle School Art Expo in the lobby of paintings, drawings and photography, all by non-visual art faculty. The participating teachers were Emily Correa, Jeanne Engelkemeir, Karen Flor, Ryan Foster, and Ingrid Wiemer. Their work showed students that visual art talent is also worth celebrating. These faculty talent shows began in 2004 to raise funds for the district’s Spirit of 67 Foundation, and they generally take place once every other year. The foundation raises more than $200,000 a year for several programs. The biggest of those are the Spirit Grants, which the teachers apply for each January to pay for a variety of things, including visiting authors, educational tools, multimedia equipment, musical instruments, arts programming and school trips. The foundation supports the Kreisher’s Kids Fund, which subsidizes expenses for low income children in the district, and Dorothy Chantler Fund Grants, for time-sensitive projects.
