Mrs. Suzy McDaniel
RELEASE your inner artist!
Hello! I'm Mrs. McDaniel and I teach at both Carriel and Fulton. This is my 15th year of teaching art in District 90. Years ago I was art director at WCIA-TV, Champaign. That gig changed with a USAF military move across country, followed by a calling to teach.
Most kiddos can't wait to get into art class. There are a few who are hesitant because they think they will fail. I love to share my passion for art. My students are imaginative, creative and enjoy taking a class that is different from core subjects.
Even if you don't plan on being a 'van Gogh' or 'Monet', art can help you in your academic classes. Research has shown students who received more arts education did better on standardized tests, improved social skills and were moe motivated than those who had reduced or no access. And if the research isn't why you took art, you'll soon learn that ART IS FUN!
