Congratulations to Knox County Christenberry Elementary School Art Education Teacher, Jessica Stewart. Jessica has been named one of the 2016 Teachers of the Year in Knox County for her skills as an exceptional educator. Jessica is a 2012 MS graduate in Art Education through the Department of Theory and Practice in Teacher Education.
As Jessica teaches art for fourth and fifth grade students, she provides “a warm and inviting environment where students are encouraged to explore and create art that is personal.” Jessica teaches art with this philosophy and the students love her. “Art is the only place that has no wrong answers. There might better some better answers, but no wrong ones. And it’s really freeing, totally safe, and it makes (students) free from failure.”
