My name is Leann Walker and I have been teaching at Lyndale since 1998. The art classroom is upstairs in room 229. Stop and say hello next time you are in the building!
+ I received my undergraduate degree in K-12 Arts Education from the University of Minnesota, Duluth. After I graduated, I spent two years teaching 6-12th grade visual arts in Bigfork, Mn.
+ I then traveled to South Texas and taught at Rio Hondo Junior High. While in Texas, I completed my Masters Degree in Educational Technology from the University of Texas, Austin.
+ I moved back to Minnesota
THE GOAL IS TO GIVE EVERY STUDENT MANY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES WITH ART TOOLS AND SUBJECTS. STUDENTS ARE EXPOSED TO A WIDE VARIETY OF ARTISTS AS THEY PROGRESS THROUGH THE MPS CURRICULUM. LEARNING NEW VOCABULARY AND TELLING STORIES THROUGH THEIR ART ARE ADDITIONAL THEMES.
Students also keep a portfolio of work for review. Artwork is sent home twice a year. The students at Lyndale create quality work! You can expect your students’ artwork around the middle and end of each school year, so be on the lookout!
