Meet Mrs. Eddy


Tell me about yourself.

My name is Janelle Eddy and I am the K – 8 art teacher in Thomaston. I grew up in Cushing and attended Cushing Community School and Thomaston Grammar School. I graduated from Georges Valley High School in 1996 and graduated from the University of Southern Maine with a Bachelors Degree in Art Education in 2002.

 

Why do you like teaching art?

I enjoy teaching art because it allows me to share my passion for art with my students. I enjoy this quote by Pablo Picasso, “All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” I truly believe that all children are artists and that it is my job to give them the tools to believe and realize that they are.

 

What are your favorite student units?

I have always enjoyed working with clay, so any lesson in which we work with clay would be my favorite lesson. We make frogs, turtles, cupcakes, vases, and many more items out of clay.

 

What is your plan for parent contact?

Please feel free to call Lura Libby School at 354-6464, or email me at jeddy@rsu13.org.

 

What are your homework guidelines?

I do not assign homework. However, I encourage students to draw at home.
