Welcome to a new school year! I am so excited to work with you on new and exciting art projects in our virtual classrooms this year! In case you wanted to know a little bit more about me I thought I'd share a bit about myself. Check out my virtual Bitmoji art room for a welcome back video message too!
I am going into my 16th year of teaching art in the Swedesboro-Woolwich School District. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University. I also have a Master of Arts in Art Education from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. I love to paint and have painted many murals at the Harker School. Two of my favorite artists are Dale Chihuly and Georgia O'Keeffe. I had the great experience of studying art in Rome, Italy during my undergraduate studies. I was the 2018-2019 Gloucester County Teacher of the Year and was also one of only six finalists for New Jersey's State Teacher of the Year in 2019. I have also had the great opportunity to run the district's energy conservation program for seven years. I have a 13 month old son named Noah and two stepsons.
I am delighted to have the opportunity to teach you all about exciting new artists, cultures, and beautiful works of art from around the world. Get ready for an exciting new year in the art room! ~Ms. Paccione~
