Jennifer Greer

I am a Highly Qualified (HQ) art teacher certified to teach Kindergarten through twelfth grade. My Bachelor’s Degree is in Art Education and I have a Master’s Degree in Literacy Education. This is my 3rd year teaching at Robert Smalls International Academy, and my 7th year teaching in South Carolina.

The middle school Art Department bridges the gap between elementary and high school.  Its function is to continue to develop the students' creative abilities, instill an enthusiasm and appreciation of the visual arts, and to develop the skills necessary for self-expression.  Through art experiences, a student continues to build skills such as critical thinking and creative problem-solving.  They will also develop an understanding of the connections between art and their core academic classes.  Art is a confidence building process that can provide the student with a greater self-confidence - thus greater self-esteem.
