First Grade SymmetryTeyha and Kandinsky Drawing



My name is Kim Roberts and I am your child’s Art teacher. This is my 26th year of teaching. I have been at Oaklawn since the building opened in 1993.  In addition, I live on the East side and my own children have attended Oaklawn, the Middle School and our High School.

Though my job can be exhausting, there is no other job for me! I teach every child in this school on a 3 day rotation.  They know when it is art day and they seem to look forward to it as much as I do. I find my job very rewarding and look forward to being here with your children. We do our best to hang their art throughout the building. I take great pride in their efforts! Please hang their art in your home too. Kids are so proud to tell me about art hanging in their rooms, halls etc. 

What a way to boost their self-esteem!
