Happy 2018/19 school year! My name is Mrs Tate, and I am the art teacher at Columbia Elementary. I have taught art for several years and several different elementary schools on the north side of St Louis. I have a strong passion for the visual arts and believe myself to be a walking work of art.
I was inspired to become an art teacher thanks to the amazing art teachers I had growing up, and hope that I can provide that same inspiration and passion for the students at Columbia.
When I am not teaching art, I spend the bulk of my time being the mother to three elementary aged children of my own.
I hope you will visit the halls of Columbia and see what your young artists have been up to so far this school year!
