Michael Ho, STEAM Technician

Michael Ho 2016

STEAM Technician

I am a native Houstonian. Prior to moving to the lovely city of Chicago, I lived and worked in Houston, Texas for 30 plus years. Due to a series of fortunate events and an opportunity to pursue graduate education at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, I would find myself in the Chicago. Before the big move, I worked in a variety of professional art fields. I worked as an art installer for the Blaffer Museum at the University of Houston and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and at Mixture and Barbara Davis, two Houston contemporary art galleries. In 2004, I had an opportunity to work at Project Row Houses as a visiting art educator. Little did I know that this would spark a lifelong career in education. Teaching has become the most rewarding career I have pursued and it still brings me great joy. It is with great excitement that I join the British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park as their STEAM. Since moving to Chicago in early spring 2016, I have to say that Chicago is a vibrant, diverse, and complex city. I love Chicago. Not only is the art in Chicago amazing, but so is the food.

Creativity challenges and helps our students get better every day. When educators provide their students with a safe environment and the opportunity to engage in creative activities such as visuals arts, industrial design, poetry, dance, and theater, we help cultivate and nurture skills such as ambition, creative problem-solving, collaboration, and resilience. Skills that enable and empower our students to live out creative, productive, and compassionate lives as members of a modern and ever-changing twenty first century society.
