My name is Jocelyn Reiss and I will be teaching sixth and seventh grade art this year. I am so excited to be at the middle school level again as I have spent the last four years teaching high school level photography, drawing, jewelry and sculpture.
I hold a BFA in sculpture and ceramics and a MA in Education; I have been teaching for eight years and working with young people for over seventeen. Before I became a teacher I worked as a freelance illustrator and staff artist for a local newspaper.
I believe that everyone has creative power and artistic ability and through mindful practice we can all become better at our chosen craft.
