Hello! My name is Theresa House and I am the art educator at East Elementary for students in grades kindergarten through sixth grade. In addition to facilitating the regular art curriculum, I also have the exciting opportunity to run an Arts Integration program at both East and West Elementary. Through this endeavor, I work closely with the homeroom teachers to create and co-teach art lessons and activities that elicit understanding of the common core curriculum. I believe that we all learn in a variety of ways. By encouraging students to delve deeper into the content of their classes through the use of multiple intelligences and integrated learning experiences, we ensure the academic success and enhanced critical thinking skills of our students.
I have lived in the Athens area since the mid 1990s. After attending Ohio University I began teaching in the district. I am married to David House, a sixth grade teacher at East Elementary and we have two wonderful kids, Norah, 4, and Evan, 1. I am a life long learner and pursuer of various artistic endeavors, we are avid gardeners and outdoors enthusiasts, and we jump at the chance to travel, especially for music experiences, as often as possible.
