Welcome!

Welcome to the Timber Creek Art Room!
So, for a little bit about me....
Education:
I studied elementary ed at Texas State and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies. Besides my elementary certification, I have also received my ESL supplemental, 30 hours of GT preparation,  as well as my Art EC-12 certification. This will be my twelfth year in the classroom.

Personal:
I have a great family that includes my husband (Jay), three dogs (Katie, Peanut, and Ishmael), and my little girl, Evie Isabella Grimes. I follow a vegan diet, which is an important part of my personal life. In my free time I love to read and paint.

As a teacher:
I believe that art is a way to explore, express creativity as well as a reflection of the soul. My goal is to teach the vocabulary, skills and history that the children should know while still focusing on the joy of expression and creation. I want every child to walk away secure in their ability to create and express their inner self. Art should be joy!
