I am the Art Educator and began teaching here at JES & BPMS in 1994. Yes, that is a very long time ago. I always thought I wanted to teach older children whose craftsmanship and thought processes were more mature, but when I met my first classes I was hooked and have never looked back! I teach with what one child referred to as a “Game Show” style. The students never really know what to expect. But learning should not be boring and it never is in ART. I have adopted the philosophy of a great leader of children to be my own. They said, “You have to have FUN but you have to know how.” That famous character was none other than The Cat in the Hat. Through fun imaginative projects your children will learn the basics in art and then be able to apply them to many different projects. I am looking forward to an amazing year.
Oh yes, as always “No Smiling”.
