Art, K-5

Why I love Teaching: What I love most about teaching is that with art- it's personal, students have the opportunity to express themselves and use a variety of materials to do just that. There's no one answer. Art challenges students to think through artistic problems, and develop useful behaviors that extend beyond the art room. 

Sandy Fisher 

I attended Towson University for my undergrad and graduate degrees.

Grade you teach – Library Media

·        Previous grades you have taught – I taught fourth grade for seven years before switching to the Library. 

·        Hobbies/Interests – I like running and playing volleyball.  I’m also a volunteer firefighter/EMT in my spare time. 

What I love about teaching is that it is different every day.  I like seeing the progress the students make as they go through the grades at Hernwood and it is neat to teach siblings.
