Allison Frobey, Art
I love teaching here at Lin-Wood. While it can be crazy to plan for every level I teach I thoroughly appreciate the fact that I never had to pick just one age group of students to teach, and instead I get to work with them all! I like the challenge of figuring out how to build unique lessons in order to keep everyone engaged, everyday, for 13 years! Out of my classroom I am not a person who can be still and chill for long periods of time which is why I love being an art teacher- it keeps me both mentally and physically engaged. The students always have something entertaining to share, or a challenge they need assistance working through. And to use one of my own personal interests- art- as the common foundation to help bridge those connections is very rewarding for me.
My Education and Professional Background:
I was always in enrichment art classes through ES MS and HS. During high school I knew I wanted to work with children so I first went to Plymouth State for Early Childhood Education. Halfway through I realized I was missing something from my life that had driven me for so long, and therefore combined both my interests and decided to focus on Art Education with a specialization in Art History. I graduated with a Bachelor Degree, found my K-12 job here at Lin-wood, and have been here for 10 years!
