Ms. Te Koehler
My name is Te Koehler, aka Ms. “K”. This year I am honored to have been chosen to teach through the Aiken INNOVATE Virtual School. This will be my 11th year teaching in South Carolina and my 4th year working in Aiken County. I started out teaching middle school visual art and introduced a Gifted and talented during the school day program for at risk students. Then, moved to the high school level taking over for my former art teacher teaching AP College Board and advanced level visual arts class. Next, 4 years ago I started teaching in Aiken at the Elementary Level. Last year, I began teaching at Paul Knox the same school that will serve as my home base this year.
I am idealistic, imaginative, and passionate. I advocate for children and dearly want to give others space to be who they are. I believe there is something you can learn from everyone no matter how young or old, rich or poor, if you take the time to truly listen and build a relationship.
My main goal in life has always been to have fun, explore, and experience life. At one time I traveled and moved a good bit with my career, which I truly enjoyed. But then during midlife, I decided to change gears; I wanted to go back to school for Art and I did. Not long after, I was asked to take over a Children’s Church Program. This is where I found that I loved teaching children. I put the two together, “Children and Art” and have been teaching art ever since.
