Degrees and Certifications:
Hi everyone! I'm Ms. Wetz, the Art teacher at MSA! I have been teaching for 24 years in Marion County. I graduated from the University of Central Florida in 1991 and earned my master's degree from St. Leo University. I have taught a wide range of areas: ESOL, Kindergarten, Primary Writing teacher, Primary Math teacher and Art teacher. I've enjoyed each each grade level and subject I've taught, but my passion is most definitely Art! Nothing is as exciting as creating something new with paint or clay and I am thrilled to see the the delight children have when they create something as unique as themselves. Children are natural artists and my goal as their art teacher is for them to explore different art techniques and mediums and develop a lifelong desire to CREATE!
I have two children that are now in college and a pet chicken as well as a hamster. Some activities I enjoy are visiting art galleries and museums (no surprise there!) and learning new art techniques such as my current favorite, glass fusion. I particularly like the glassblowing work of Dale Chihuly.
