My name is Ms. Houser! I am the Art Teacher here at Tawanka Elementary School. I am very excited to have the opportunity to teacher at a school that supports the arts! My goal is to provide the best education possible for the students. Art is an essential need for students in their everyday life. I want to provide them with tools that they can carry with them to make them successful in the future.
A little bit about myself. I graduated from Kutztown University in 2011 with a Bachelors in Art Education. I had the opportunity to teach art to Pre-K students for 5 years and K-4th grade art/makerspace for 2 years. Currently I am going back to school to recieve my Masters in Connected Learning and STEM. I have a crazy dog name Rielly who keeps me on my toes everyday! I love to go for a long runs and try to race my dog but somehow I never win. I love art and had it in my life as long as I can remember.
My go to phrase in my room is, "An artist never has clean hands". I want my students to be able to create and be innovative so that one day they can be the new face of art. The possibilities are endless. Every child is an artist as Pablo Picasso says.
