Responding to community needs, Fatheree developed the curriculum for Lake Land's basic animation course.

"As an instructional leader, I believe it is my duty to help facilitate student learning," says Fatheree.
"I have created a culture in my classroom that encourages the students to become vested partners in the
learning process....My overarching goals are to continue work with business, political and community
leaders around the country to create a culture that ensures the education of our children is a
national priority, and the system that provides it is second to none."
