Mrs. Julie Fahey
This is my first year teaching at South Sumter Middle School. Although I am a new Florida resident, I am not new to teaching Art. I have been teaching Art at a middle school in Minnesota for the last 17 years.
I earned my bachelors degree in Art Education from the University of Minnesota. My first teaching job was in Las Vegas Nevada where I taught elementary Art for 8 years. I also earned a masters degree in Educational Leadership at the University of Nevada while I was in Las Vegas.
I am passionate about Art and sharing it with the students. I encourage them to bring their personal interests and ideas into their project designs. The focus of my program is to teach the students about the Elements of Art and how to incorporate them into their artwork. We also learn how to identify and discus the Elements of Art in artworks by known artists in history.
