Welcome to ART with MRS. TENNESSEE! GO CHARGERS! Mrs. Tennessee graduated from Churchill High School in the year 2000! She went on to study art at the University of North Texas in Denton where she acquired her degree in Visual Art Studies in 2005. GO MEAN GREEN EAGLES! Her first year of teaching was spent in Dallas ISD teaching sixth grade art. She then transitioned to the high school setting teaching in Irving ISD for seven years where she taught ART 1, PAINTING, FIBERS, CERAMICS, and AP3D Studio. Mrs. Tennessee began her ninth year in Plano ISD where she had the opportunity to teach with her best friend and mentor teaching ART 1, PRE-AP ART 1 and ART 2. The 2018-2019 school year marks Mrs. Tennessee's fourteenth year teaching secondary art! She was excited to expand the art program at Churchill High School by launching the AP STUDIO 3D program in the Fall of 2017! This Fall brings about introducing the Art and Media Communications curriculum brought to you by the Texas Cultural Trust Digital Pioneer Certification and training. Mrs. Tennessee's TWO most important classroom principles are RESPECT and ENGAGE built with a foundation of LOVE! To put it plain and simple BE NICE and WORK HARD!
I'm looking forward to meeting YOU and your FAMILY! It's my goal to not only make YOU the best ARTIST you can BE, but for you to leave with PURPOSE and the DESIRE to be the best PERSON YOU CAN BE!
