Hello and welcome to Velma Jackson High School !!. I am so excited to get another school year underway. I have alot of exciting projects planned this year.About the TeacherThis is my eleventh year at Velma and will be my fifteenth year as a classroom educator. Currently I teach a variety of art classes including Dual Enrollment Art Appreciation, Drawing I, and Painting.As an art teacher, I have a genuine love of the fine arts, not only for educational purposes but also as a means of personal expression. For this reason, I got my undergraduate degree in art (two-dimensional design) from the University of Southern Mississippi and a master's degree in Fine Art from Mississippi College (where I already received a Master's in Education).I am a working artist who loves different media as modes of expression. Alot of my work is based on commission and I also do some art shows throughout the year.
