Miss Jacobi's Art Class
About the Teacher
Hello! I am new here at St. Eugene School and excited to be the Art Teacher. This is my second year teaching, previously long term substitute teaching 2nd grade and subbing K-8.
I attended St. Charles Borromeo elementary school and Archbishop Prendergast High school.
I graduated from Tyler school Of Art & Design at Temple University, receiving my Bachelors in Visual Studies.
After subbing for a year I grew to love teaching and recently received my Art Education & teaching certification from Moore college of Art and Design.
I am a practicing artist, mainly working in acrylic paint. I love environmental studies, animals, gardening and running. I am looking forward to the rest of the school year here at St. Eugene!
