I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. My name is Joy Hogshead and I will be your child’s Art teacher for the first semester of this year. Second semester I will go to Churchville Elementary. I look forward to working with your child during this school year.
A little bit about me: I received a degree in Art from Bridgewater College in 1974. I obtained my teaching licensure five years ago through Shenandoah University. I have been employed with Augusta County Public Schools for 25 years. I was an instructional aide at Beverley Manor Elementary for ten years and North River Elementary for eight years of which the last five were spent teaching Art. I taught Art at Stuarts Draft Elementary School for 3 years, then transferred to Beverley Manor Elementary and still teach art at Churchville Elementary School.
My husband, Harry, and I live in Parnassus, VA. We have two children. Jennifer, our daughter, is married and has two beautiful daughters ages 8 and 6 . She is a guidance counselor at Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind. Our son, Harry, Jr., lives with his wife in Alexandria, VA where he is a Family Crisis Manager with a company there. My husband is now retired from Valley VoTech where he was a guidance counselor. We enjoy beekeeping, star gazing, and fishing.
Please feel free to stop by the Art room if you are in the building.
The Art syllabus for the year will be located in the selection to the left on the Art menu. Again, I look forward to teaching your child/ren. If you need to reach me for any reason, please feel free to email me at the address below.
