  4. 4. 3 halifax p e t e r h a l i f a x 1 @ g m a i l . c o m Vision We are all connected, we have different personalities, and we are a melting pot of different cultures all woven together like a fabric. Understanding this will help us get along with each other, work together to solve problems, and search for solutions. Having sensitivity to the world around us will allow us to be creative and productive. Change will happen and it will be done in a positive way. Mission Helping students have passion and vision for their work and to believe in themselves. This will contribute positively to the health, happiness and well being of family, friends, and colleagues. My mission is to help students by fostering an environment conducive to positive outcomes, develop and refine conceptual thinking and translate ideas into visual form all the way through. Profession Being an educator, I take my work and that responsibility very seriously. I do care, I teach my students to have passion and vision for their work and to believe in themselves. I am able to develop my personal and intellectual growth, critical thinking skills, technology and methodologies. To be a leader, you have to be a rebel, strike out from the nerve, the accepted, and introduce your method, style, and fashion. Whistler did this in his paintings, Ravel did the same in his music, but leaders are only leaders if they have followers, they do not work in isolation. In art, leadership is different than in other fields, we don’t want to mold students to our own idea of what a painter or sculptor should be, but free them to become themselves.

  11. 11. 10 halifax Completed: DP (Displaced Person) is a powerful true story of hope and survival, about a young girl named Evhenia who survived the most turbulent years of WWII. Over seven million men, women and children fell to the Genocidal Famine. This ghastly period was deliberately planned and perpetrated by Stalin–with the specific intent of exterminating a nation. Germany invaded the Soviet Union, storming through the Ukraine where our story takes place. Evhenia, caught in the middle of this turmoil, was taken from her parent’s by German soldiers and transported by cattle-car train to a labor camp. She endured harsh physical conditions, until liberated by American soldiers and placed in an internment camp. There she met a man named Nikola who aggressively, and relentlessly pursued her. Evhenia wanted nothing to do with him, but Nikola wasn’t giving up that easily, followed her to England and settled in the poorest, blue-collar industrial town of northern England. Neither of them could speak English, and had no money; she eventually gave in to his advances, married him, and had three children, all boys. Nikola deceived her; he was already married with children. The story continues to show how Nikola splits up the family, takes the two older boys, leaving the youngest boy Peter behind with his mother to live in poverty. Fourteen years later Peter, now twenty-one, leaves his mother to search for his estranged father and brothers, and finds them living in America. Peter discovers his father is a polygamist, a womanizer, and was married five times. His older brother was drafted into the U.S. Army and sent to Vietnam. Peter’s other brother is serving 15 years at the Ohio State Penitentiary. The story concludes with the sad and tragic death of Evhenia. Evhenia Kobasa 1924-2003

Fine Artist As a painter I love to work in many mediums, acrylics, oils and mixed media, in a variety of styles and subject matter. I love painting on large canvases, the bigger the better.

  20. 20. 19 halifax Inventor Badly designed products plague the average American’s existence causing an inexcusable waste of time, energy, money and raw materials. Poor design and lack of significant conserva- tion effort has greatly contributed to the present shortages of fuel, food, air and other natural resources. True solutions must be found through new and better design of present and future products. This invention addresses itself to the partial solution of such problems as conservation of time, energy, and packaging materials in the instant coffee and/or tea markets. This invention is called Coffee Cubes, it relates to forming and compacting instant coffee and/or tea, by itself or in combination with instant milk and/or sugar into various solid geometric forms, primarily by compaction or by chemical bonding. More precisely, this invention relates to instant coffee and/or tea, with or without cream and/or sugar in cube, cylindrical or other geometric form. Another invention of mine is The Executive Entertainement Center (TEEC), a portable luggage that is divided into several sections, with one section designed for use as a standard carrying case for documents and the other sections containing either one or multiplicity of work-aid and/or entertainment instruments which are connected to and can be cotrolled by a central control panel which is connected to a power source and optionally, if desired, to the speakers.

  25. 25. My Statement and Philosophy of Teaching My philosophy of teaching stems from my personal faith and professional values, my individual contribution to student learning is the result of a collective experience shaped by my faith in God, people and events. I believe wisdom enlarges a person’s perspective on life, and a wise person desires to see life through God’s wisdom and teaching. I promote the understanding of cultural diversity, and believe this will help us get along with each other, work together to solve problems, and search for solutions. Having sensitivity to the world around us will allow us to be creative and productive. I often share this visual imagery of a priceless hand made rug: Just for a moment imagine yourself looking underneath this priceless rug, what do you see? You see confusion; all the different color threads represent the different people and cultures of the world, the threads intertwined show the complexity of this world, the beauty of the design is only seen from above by God. Being an educator, I take my work and responsibility very seriously. I care. I teach my students to have passion and vision for their work, to believe in themselves. This philosophy contributes positively to the health, happiness and well being of family, friends, and colleagues. My mission is to help students by fostering an environment conducive to positive outcomes, to help them develop and refine conceptual thinking and translate ideas into visual form. To share knowledge and skills gained overtime through my own educational background, personal and professional experience. I work daily to develop my personal and intellectual growth, critical thinking skills, technology and methodologies. In art, leadership is different than in other fields. My goal is not to mold students to my own idea of what a painter or sculptor should be, but free them to become them selves. In being a teacher I am conscious that with every thing I do I have to be careful to model or teach the right things because every action, word or attitude speaks louder than any lecture that I can deliver. I believe this is as important as communicating information and facilitating learning. In this way, we are establishing relationships, building knowledge and value bases at the same time. Through my own faith and values, a difference is made for someone else. Sincerely Peter Halifax
