Hello! I'm so excited to be teaching art at North Park Elementary! This will be my 9th year teaching art here! I love all things about art and helping students to express themselves with art. This will be my 19th year of teaching. I previously taught 3rd grade and Kindergarten before my current role in art. I graduated from Western Kentucky University in 2002 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and again in 2005 with a Master's in Guidance Counseling. I have a special calling for art and how it helps students to learn by creating something beautiful and new that they didn't think that they could do!
A little bit about me: I am married to my husband, Thomas Riney and reside in Rineyville, KY. We have two grown daughters, Cynthia and Allyssa. We have three grandchildren, Levi, Connor and Kohen. We have one Miniature Schnauzer named Ozzy. We love to spend time with family and friends making memories.
In my free time I love to create art of my own, read, swim, travel and exercise.
I look forward to being a part of your child's Kindergarten experience this year! North Park is a wonderful place to start your child's education!
