Flower Mound Elementary Art Room
Wow! Can you believe it? We are half way through the school year!
A little about me...
I'v been married 24 years and have two kids. My daughter is 14, my son is 11, and two border collies named Piper and Summer. We are soon getting another dog, a service dog for my husband, but part of the family!
When I'm not working, I like to spend time with my family. I enjoy going to the movies, shopping, riding my bike, and fishing. I like to go out to eat and therefore I like to workout! I hope to spend more time making my own art some day.
Food- Hamburgers and chocolate cake!
Drink- Diet Cherry Limeade from Sonic
Candy- Twix, Kit Kat, cherry sours, fruit flavored Tootsy Rolls

What are yours?
Rules ensure that everyone has a positive, safe and pleasant experience in all that they do.
I borrowed this poster, but I like what it says.
CHAMPS- School wide positive discipline strategy for rules and procedures that are adaptable for different environments.
A few other points to remember... :-)
E- exceeds expectations/objectives- WOW! Lots of detail, very neat, max effort, quality, and skill.
M- meets expectations/objectives. Nothing more, nothing less, but good quality work.
S- still developing, OR lacks in effort
N- needs improvement, OR little to no effort.
Each Fine Arts Teacher adapts these grades to their specialty.
* I borrowed these images too.
Behavior and Participation Grades
The future is bright! I'm having an awesome day because I am making great choices! I am getting my work done. Attentive and I am showing respect for my teacher, classmates, and materials. I am responsible even when no one is looking!!
Having a pretty good day. I am doing what is expected of me. I am making good choices most of the time. I am following the rules and being respectful to my teacher, classmates and materials.
I have to think about making better choices today. I need to stay on task so that I can get my work done. Moving to another seat might help be more successful. I have the power to make choices. I can have an awesome day if I choose!
I am not having a good day because I have chosen to behave in a negative manner. I am disrespectful to my teacher or my classmates, or materials. I am choosing not to following directions or rules. I need to change my attitude so that I can be successful!
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
PROCEDURES FOR ENTERING AND EXITING
You will be able to sit where you like the first day. This will become your assigned seat. Assigned seats are important so that I know who where you are and who might be absent.
I have implemented a non verbal red card system for correcting behavior. If a student is observed displaying negative/disruptive/or off task behavior, he or she will be given a red card. It simply states, "Please stop what you are doing and make a better choice." If a student earns 3 of this during class, a note will go home. It is my hope/goal that all students are respectful, successful, and angaged so that there are no issues to interfere with learning and the creative process.
When leaving the art room, the tables should be clean, floor relatively clean, materials put away in the proper place, and students should be sitting quietly.
ALWAYS IN NEED OF...
pencils, erasers, glue, sharpie, working markers, yarn, watercolor, drawing paper
copy paper, gel markers, glitter, sequins, cardboard, puffy paint
I WILL KEEP YOUR ARTWORK UNTIL SHOWTIME. AS SHOWTIME APPROACHES, YOU WILL BE GIVEN AN INVITATION WITH ALL THE IMPORTANT INFORMATION.
YOU WILL HAVE OTHER OPPORTUNITIES TO DISPLAY YOUR ARTWORK THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. AS ALWAYS, MUSIC AND ART WORK TOGETHER TO SHOWCASE YOUR MUSIC AND ARTISTIC TALENTS! IN ADDITION, SOME OF YOU WILL HAVE ARTWORK DISPLAYED AT VARIOUS LOCATIONS THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY. I NOTE WILL GO HOME AS WELL.
IF YOU HAVE CONCERNS, PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO ASK. YES, YOU WILL GET YOUR ARTWORK BACK! :-)
