East Houston

Playing in the schoolyard at the Energy Institute

Houston has an extensive array of street art.  Probably one of the best places to start is Graffiti Park.  Located at 2102 Leeland  Street, one can find many people walking around the buildings and photographing the artwork.  However there are other murals not far from this area.  Take a walk further down the street and city blocks, you will find a mural of Wonder Woman holding up a pick-up truck or a yard of curious children painted on the side of the Energy Institute High School,  formerly the Dodson Elementary School in East Downtown.

I have spent the majority of my adult life as a science educator. As a K-5 science specialist for a major Florida School District I designed and developed the first-two stand-alone dedicated K-5 science classroom in the State — developed through a $100,000 grant by the Monsanto Corporation. I have worked as a naturalist and director of a 120 acre environmental center, as well as an Instructional Specialist for the U.S. Navy (Financial Management), U.S. Army (designing and developing medical interactive multimedia and distance learning courses,) and Department of Defense Dependent Schools (Science Specialist.)
