I am Ms. Elliott the new Art teacher at East Coldenham and I want to tell you how excited I am to teach your child during the upcoming school year.
I will be guiding your child on a creative voyage. It will be amazing!
I am originally from Sullivan County so I am no stranger to the area. I received my BA from Elmira College and obtained my NYS certification in Visual Art Education (K-12).
Traveling is a very important part of my life because I believe experiencing new cultures and places is a wonderful way to help students learn about diversity and the world around us.
This year your student will be doing all sorts of incredible things. I am looking forward to a fantastic year teaching your student to enjoy, appreciate, and create art. Efforts will be made to correlate art lessons with the academic core curriculum. We will look at and talk about major works/styles of art, as well as create our own masterpieces using the elements and principles of art. We will study various artists, art styles, and cultures from around the world. The curriculum aligns with the New York State Standards for Visual Arts.
As the year goes on, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments or concerns via my school email or phone.
