Art education is especially concerned with students developing their imagination, creativity and an appreciation for the arts, as well as developing observational skills, expression and communication of thoughts, ideas and feelings through the visual arts.
My name is Yumirys Peña and I am the art teacher here at ISS. I want to extend to you and your child my warmest welcome to the new school year. I am so glad to be a part of this community, working with staff, students and parents to create an exciting learning experience for everyone here. I am looking forward to an amazing new school year.
I knew from a very early age that art would be a big part of my life. I was constantly creating, in fact, my first job as a pre-teen was as a nail artist. To this day, I still love painting designs on nails.
This is my 12th year here at ISS and each year is better than the last. I like to expose the students to a variety of different materials and introduce them to the artwork of artists from all around the world and throughout history. I have experience working in different areas such as SSL, Instructional support. I enjoy reading, organizing and coordinating performances and spending time with my family.
Should you need to contact me you can email me at any time. If you would like to have a conference I will be very glad to see you, please make an appointment through the office. I have learned that each child is unique, and each child learns in a different way. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help your child discover his or her individuality and work alongside them to maximize it. I am really looking forward to working with your child and enjoying another fun-filled, educational year!
