Mrs. Maria Bishop

I am a former 2011 Madison Central High School graduate (Go Jags!).

I graduated from The University of Mississippi, then pursued my dreams of working for Walt Disney World. I am a Disney College Program Alum. This year, my husband and I welcomed our first son, Luka in May! 

Being an art teacher has been a dream of mine since I was in the 7th grade, and I enjoy sharing this passion with my students each year! I am truly passionate about art and enjoy showing students how fun this subject can be as well as how we can relate it to everyday life!

This year, I am excited to be teaching Art and Photography. I will be starting this year on maternity leave, but my sub will take good care of the class. I look forward to meeting everyone later this year! 

This is my sixth year teaching at MCHS and I look forward to a wonderful year full of learning and growing!
