Welcome to Steiner Ranch Elementary Art Class!

My name is Susan Joe, the art teacher at Steiner Ranch Elementary. This is my 21st year as a teacher and 14th year teaching art in this wonderful school. I am so proud of all our students in their accomplishments and look forward to another super year of teaching and creating art! 
Ever since I was young, I was passionate in creating art works. I enjoy painting, sculpting, drawing, various fiber arts, origami, and designing jewelry. I appreciate and enjoy arts from all cultures and am eager to share that passion with my students.
Although I have spent most of my life right here in Austin, Texas; I am extremely proud of my Taiwanese heritage, and the four wonderful years of my childhood in Leeds, England.
I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts, Studio Art degree, All-Level Art teaching certification from the University of Texas at Austin. Hook 'em Horns!!!!
During my spare time I enjoy painting, sculpting, jewelry-making, reading, and most of all; spending time with my husband, Gene, and 18 year-old daughter, Lisa. 
I look forward to teach many exciting art classes to our students and help them explore their creative expression, problem solving, and art appreciation skills.
