Meet the Art Teacher

Hello!  My name is Jerri Michelle Bieker and I am so excited about this school year!  This is my 10th year to teach art and my 5th year here at Rosehill Elementary. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Photography and two Minors, one in Business and one in Art from Sam Houston State University.  I received my teaching certificates in Early Childhood and Art All Level from University of Houston at Victoria.
 
I have a husband of 30 years named Mark who restores classic cars and a 20 year old daughter named Sarah in her junior year at University of North Texas studying Graphic Design and Marketing. I also have 3 busy border collie dogs! 
 
Art has always been apart of my life.  I am very passionate about teaching art.  Why Art?  I can not put it any better than the list that I hang outside the art room every year.
 
     Art enhances and enriches all learning experiences.
     Art teaches problem solving skills. 
     Art teaches us how to focus and how to listen.
     Art builds language and social skills.
     Art promotes creative thinking across the curriculum.
     Art lets us share our feelings with others.
     Art is talking in pictures.
     Art is all around us.
     Don't find time for art make time for art!
 
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share the year with your child, teaching them and watching them grow in their art experiences!
