Welcome videos for the 23-24 school year.
I am the Art and PALS teacher for Lopez Middle School. This will be my 29th year teaching art and my seventeenth year teaching art and PALS at Lopez MS. I taught art in the Comal District for eleven years before taking a seven-year sabbatical to raise my two daughters. I am a graduate of Southwest Texas State University (Texas State) with a Bachelor of Science in Education. I hold certifications in Art all-level and General Education 1-8. I received several awards during my teaching career. The awards I received are Teacher of the Year for Lopez MS 2017-2018. Comal ISD, Teacher of the Year--1992-1993, Teacher of the Month Comal ISD 1992, and Honorary lifetime PTA Member 1999. You will find an article I wrote in the Arts and Activities magazine titled Jungle Batiks. I am a member of the Texas Art Educators Association. I have served on several state committees. I served as a consultant for the Texas Education Agency Fine Art -TEKS and on the Texas Education Agency State Textbook Committee. The teaching assignments and duties I hold on the Lopez campus are Department Chair Electives, Visual Arts Teacher, Peer Assistance Leaders (PALS) Teacher, Lead co-coordinator, and Web Page Coordinator.
I enjoy spending time with my daughters, quilting, and finding new inspiration for my art students. My daughters are both graduates of Reagan HS and Lopez MS. Kenlynn is a graduate of Oregon State with a BS in Wildlife Biology and Fishery. She is currently in graduate school studying genetic conservation. Jamesynn (Jamie) is an Entrepreneur with a small business in Austin called Tiny Tents. I am an artist who quilts all by hand and creates art using fibers.
