Art Teacher at Parsley Elementary

Hi, my name is Suzanne M. Sload. I have been very happy teaching at Parsley for the last 16 years. It's hard to believe that Parsley opened it's doors 17 years ago this fall.  Time flies when you're having fun.  Here is a bit about me. After receiving a B.S. in Art Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP), my husband and I moved to Wilmington, NC.   For 24 years, I've taught in the New Hanover County School system.   Prior to Parsley, I taught at J.C. Roe and Alderman.  I have two wonderful children who were Parsley Patriots. My daughter Sophia, who is 16and in high school and my son Curren, who is 13 and in middle school.  How time flies. It seems like only yesterday Sophia and Curren were in Kindergarten at Parsley.  Some of my personal favorite media in art are painting and clay. Now, you can probably figure out why your children bring home several clay projects throughout the year. (they love it, too) I am happy doing what I love, teaching students the technique and beauty of art. 

Mission Statement: 

     It is my goal that all children are given the opportunity to express their feelings through art, to be exposed to many various art techniques and artists throughout time
