Teacher of the Year 2016-2017

Clyattville Elementary is pleased to announce Rena Taylor as the 2016-2017 Teacher of the Year! This is her biography:

I received a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Valdosta State College and a Master of Education in Middle Grades from Valdosta State University. 
I have taught visual arts for 20 years, 16 of which have been at Clyattville Elementary. I have mentored 4 student teachers and have one coming in the Fall. I have 3 wonderful children. Josh is an accomplished artist, Sarah is a VSU student and a world traveler, and Jeremy is an all around athlete and soon to be marine. I also have a daughter-in-law, Katarina, and a wonderful grandson, Tristian.

I love making and teaching art to children and adults through my job at school and private paint/ mixed media  parties at various venues. I attend church at Azalea City Church of God and love Jesus with a passion. All I do is to bring glory to His name and be a reflection of Him.
