Art Classes and PYP
Classes will focus on the elements and principles of design. They will also focus on the national core visual arts standards which focus on creating, presenting, responding and connecting art. Lessons will also include past and modern artists to help children learn art history. The lessons will be taught in the PYP fashion to be consistent with Franklin's new IB curriculum. It will be great!!
I was raised in Nevada. I graduated from the University of Nevada-Reno with my BA. I then graduated with a dual Masters at Notre Dame de Namur University in California. I worked in Miami as an Art Therapist for 12 years. We lived in Peru for 2 years where I began teaching. We then lived in Reno, NV for 2 years, where I taught 3rd grade. This is my second year at Franklin as the art teacher and I love it!!
