Degrees and Certifications:
Summer Conover graduated with a Bachelor's of Fine Art Degree from California State University Channel Islands, after transferring from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
After teaching privately in my Art Studio for 7 years, I obtained a Masters of Education and a California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from UCSD in 2014. Fine art painting is my passion, and sharing my love for the arts inspires me in the classroom.
As a teacher, my goal is to bring my students a creative, hands-on approach to learning. My mission is to nurture my students’ love and enthusiasm for education through utilizing my experience as a professional artist to enhance their learning environment. My experience as an art teacher in the past has given me the opportunity to teach all ages, from children to adults. I have tailored my lessons to the unique qualities of each of my students, with the interest in preserving their individual creative style. My goal as a teacher is to contribute my enthusiasm and excitement for the arts into my classroom and further my student’s knowledge of the importance of the arts in our culture and educational system. Children should have a hands-on learning environment, where they are given the freedom to explore their imagination. This provides students with an environment where they are confident in their skills and open to new ideas and learning.
I am thrilled to be apart of Del Mar Heights Elementary School, and look forward to a wonderful, creative year!
