Mr. Zane W. Carroll
As a NEISD alumni and a member of the local community, I am personally vested in this school and take great pride in our students. I have been teaching in the district for over 10 years. I realize the potential for greatness each one of our kids have, and my goal is to help them find that in themselves and, if they so choose a career in art, develop and guide them further into that field. After graduating from NESA, I went on to earn a BFA in Art Education, Emphasis in Sculpture, at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in Denver, CO. After receiving my Bachelor's, I was accepted to Texas Tech University were I earned a MFA in Sculpture and Drawing. Before being blessed with a job in NEISD, I taught at Texas Tech as an Adjunct Professor in Sculpture and Drawing. I have since earned a College Board AP Certification at Rice in Art History AP and Studio Art AP. I also continue to practice art and show my work to stay sharp on my skills so my students will know the latest and greatest. My latest projects involved a commission from the City of San Antonio for a sculpture installation downtown, and last summer I taught medieval art skills such as calligraphy and period ceramics to adults and children. I am also a U.S. Army veteran of 9 years, first serving as a Combat Medic Enlisted and then a Combat Engineer Officer. Please feel free to contact me for any reason. I love to hear from my parents and community!
