Mrs. Erica Dossett
Visual Arts Teacher
I am passionate about Art Education and believe the arts are a necessary part of every child's education. The arts develop cognitive functioning and increase student academic achievement, higher-order thinking, communication, and collaboration skills, making fine arts applicable to college readiness, career opportunities, workplace environments, social skills, and everyday life. Creativity, encouraged through the study of the fine arts, is essential to nurture and develop the whole child.
I believe the goal of education is to provide an environment where both students and teachers can grow and blossom, learning skills to lead happy, healthy, creative, balanced, and meaningful lives.
"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all." ~Aristotle
