Hello, my name is Leah Whisenant (Miss Wizzy), and I will be teaching your child art this year! I am so incredibly blessed to be at such an awesome school and I am so excited to get to know each and every one of you this year.
Here is a little information about me! I was born and raised here in Madison, MS. I have loving parents, Wanda and Jeff, a brother, Zach, and a goofy and cuddly golden retriever, named JJ. I earned my BSED in Art Education from Mississippi College. I have been teaching at Madison Avenue Upper Elementary for 2 years and this will be my 3rd! As a whole, I have been teaching for 5 years. In my free time, I enjoy watching movies, spending time with my family, taking road trips, shopping at Michaels and Hobby Lobby, crafting and creating various types of art.
We are going to have an awesome year creating art!!! I have so many fun activities planned for this school year. This year, our theme in art class will be.... "ADVENTURE AWAITS"! Students will be connecting art with science, technology, history and culture. They will be going on an adventure by learning about various topics such as exploration of earth and outer space, technology/artificial intelligence, archaeological discoveries, cultures around the world and historical mysteries, while also learning various art techniques. Students will also receive extra time in art class during their Team Tuesday times! Our Team Tuesday art classes will consist of an entirely different theme and different art projects. This year's theme for Team Tuesday in art is, "INTO THE JUNGLE." Students will be creating art inspired by the jungle habitat, such as the various animals and plant life.
