Hello, my name is Mr. Reed and I teach Art at Spring Cove Middle School. My hometown is Washington, PA near Pittsburgh. I graduated from Trinity High School and hold a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in graphic design from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania.
I attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania and received a Bachelors of Science degree in Art Education in May of 2004.
As a professional art educator, I will strive for my own personal excellence. As an art educator, I will seek my own professional excellence. I plan to organize my classes in a way that is flexible yet directed. Nothing is worse than being in a poorly planned class. The children of today deserve teachers that consider their job a gift to be given rather than a job to be tolerated. I will strive to encourage students prolific in art to pursue their abilities and to consider working in the field of art. I want to inspire those not necessarily gifted in art, and show them the benefits of appreciating art and the joy of creating. I plan to make the 45 minutes I have with each student their best time of their day. I want to grow in my ability and knowledge of creating art, art history, art criticism and art aesthetics. When I grow as a teacher, I will be able to deepen and broaden the scope of my subject matter. It will give me the ability to teach with even greater authority and meaning. On a personal note, I am married to Mrs. Sherri Reed, reading specialist at M.E.S. We have 2 sons and I enjoy fishing, reading, walking and spending time with my family.
