DCC Welcomes Mrs. Gardner to the Middle and High School


Rachel Aravich, Senior Editor

Mrs. Gardner (formerly Ms. Roy) has been an elementary art school teacher for the past few years, and now she is our middle school and high school art teacher. Her major in college was art education with a minor in Studio Arts at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

Mrs. Gardner described her family relationship as “we are all really close”. Besides creating art, she  enjoys reading. Her impressions of Central are that it is “very welcoming and that everyone is very kind and really tries to be”.

One of her challenges this year is that she will have to adapt to teaching middle and high school students instead of elementary kids.

One fact that she wants people to know about her is “that I believe everyone is good at art even if they think they aren’t”.

We love having her as our new art teacher because she interacts with the kids well and has an upbeat attitude. She will do great things in art this year.
