Hello Franklin Families!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my page! For those of you who don't know, I am the new art teacher here at Franklin Elementary. I recently moved back to the Pittsburgh area after teaching for 9 years in the beautiful city of Charleston, South Carolina and am so thrilled to have the opportunity to now be teaching for the same district that I attended from k-12. That's right, many many moons ago I graduated from North Allegheny, and it was because of my fabulous art teachers in this district that I was inspired to become an art teacher myself!
There is nothing that I love more than working with children everyday and helping them make connections in art to their own lives. I love watching my students learn to THINK and SEE like an artist, which means problem solving, trying new things, create many possible solutions from one question, explore new and fun materials, and develop an appreciation for many different types of art and artists.
If you are interested in taking a peek into our art room, please check out my art room instagram account at @artwithmrs.e. You can click here to see our daily creativity!
Thank you for sharing your children with me, I cannot wait to see the beautiful work they create in art this year!
-Mrs. Kaitlyn Edington
