Mrs. Cummings, VAPA Pathways
The Creator’s Lab
My name is Mrs. Cummings, and I am the Visual and Performing Arts Achievement Guide. As a proud GIVER from the House of ALTRUISMO (The Black House), I also stand as the House Coordinator for Garvey/Allen STEAM Academy.
Along with my 20+ years of experience in the field of education, I am a professional Choir Director, Worship Leader, and background singer. I also moonlight as an amateur writer/producer and stage choreographer. As a Simper Phi Award winner in Musicianship, I have knowledge and experience in reading music as well as playing several instruments (my personal favorites to play are the clarinet, violin, and trumpet). I love to relax by reading great books, spending time with family, discovering music, singing, and crafting.
I grew up surrounded by all kinds of music, art, and knowledge. While the men in my life encouraged me to read everything and seek knowledge at every turn; the women taught me that my creativity and passion for art were a secret power. And I love to share that power with everyone I can.
I truly believe that a child's first occupation is to be authentically themselves. And through the beauty of books, writing, and visual and performing arts (a cornerstone of Garvey/Allen STEAM Academy), anyone can find out who they are. My personal motto is, "Be the best version of yourself." I am so excited to work with the Achievers and their village to guide them towards their best selves.
This is going to be a GREAT year! Happy 22/23!
Peace and Blessings,
