    Welcome to Mrs. Whetstone’s Art Room!

     
     

    I am currently the Art Teacher at Adams Elementary School where I teach students ranging from Preschool to Grade 6. Before becoming a teacher, I received a Bachelor’s degree in  Interdisciplinary Studies (Photography and Art History) from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2002. In 2008, I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Missouri-St. Louis with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education. This is my 6th year of teaching Art in the city of St. Louis!

     

    I think being an Art Teacher is the best job in the world!  Here at Adams we strive to create interdisciplinary connections between what students are learning in their core subjects and in their Related Arts classes. Art is a great hands-on way to practice concepts used in Math, Science, Social Studies, and Communication Arts. As an Art teacher, it is very rewarding to see my students create new things and reach new heights.  In my class I am always looking for students who are trying new things, and most importantly, trying their best. It is my commitment to my students to do the best I can at giving them the education they deserve!

     

    Thank you for visiting!
