Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am Hannah Elmore. I graduated from Lander Univestry in May of 2021 with a degree in Visual Arts (K-12 Cert), so this is my first year teaching! I moved to Aiken over the summer, originally I am from Upstate SC. Currently, I teach at LBC Middle School in the mornings and Midland Valley High School in the afternoons. I am super excited to start my teaching career in Aiken County!
I have been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil and I knew I wanted to teach art ever since I was in middle school. A lot of my insipartion to be a good (art) teacher comes my own middle school art teacher. She was a wonderfully kind woman who listened to each student and helped them find ways to be creative. As a student who was contastly making up stories in my head, art gave me the place to express myself and my teacher supported me greatly. I am so happy that I am finally getting to see some of my dreams come true. My goal as your student's art teacher is to help your student create something that they are proud of. It is amazing to watch someone be excited to show someone else their work, it is really sweet too knowing that you are that person they wanted to share it with. Art is a creative and healthy outlet for your child, these future artists. It only teaches them about self expression, but also how to interrput and be sensitive to others.
A little information about me is my hobbies include anything and everything creative; I love drawing, painting, building, and making sand sculptures at the beach! I also really enjoy reading, cooking, spending time with family or friends, and going on adventures. If you can't find me in the art classroom, probably working late, I can usually be found in a quiet spot drawing or relaxing with my cat. If you ever need to reach me, you can Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to working with you!
