Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Lauren Blythe & this is my first year teaching art at Stetson Hills. I grew up in Northwest Indiana (super close to Chicago, IL) & I graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Art Education & Psychology. After graduating, I moved to Phoenix & taught art at Highland Lakes for the 2015-2016 school year before moving to Seattle. I thought I could handle all the rain, but I was wrong! I finally moved back to Phoenix in July 2020 & I'm so glad to be back with my DVUSD family!
As an art teacher, I have a unique & wonderful opportunity to engage my students in a way that's typically more fun for them; however, I take education very seriously and I always emphasize higher order thinking skills in my lessons. I believe all my students possess the skills they need to succeed & it's my job to help them discover these skills & learn how to apply them across every area of their lives- academic, social, & emotional.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns: firstname.lastname@example.org
My virtual office hours are 1:45-2:15 Monday through Thursday. Please email me if you need to meet at a different time.
