Mrs. Tracy Grace
I am looking forward to teaching Art this year at Copper Creek! I am returning to DVUSD after a few years off. I previously taught for several years at Terramar and one year at Park Meadows.
I have a B.A. from the University of Southern California as well as a Masters in Elementary Education from Arizona State. My art education began as a child and continues still today. I continue to take art classes when I get a chance and especially enjoy exploring new media.
Art has always been a passion of mine and I love sharing that passion with children. One of the best parts of my job is seeing the expressive qualities of children's artwork. Seeing students feel proud of their work and accomplishments is very rewarding. I strongly believe in the importance of art education in our schools. I hope to create a fun and engaging environment for children and, in turn, broaden students' appreciation of art and the role it plays in our lives.
I am married and have two grown children. In my free time I enjoy traveling with my family, reading, hiking, studying Italian and, of course, creating art!
Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time with questions or comments at email@example.com. I am looking forward to an awesome year of Art at Copper Creek!
