Art Teacher at Parsley Elementary
Hi, my name is Suzanne M. Sload. I have been very happy teaching at Parsley for the last 12 years. It's hard to believe that Parsley opened it's doors 12 years ago this fall. Time flies when you're having fun. Here is a bit about me. After receiving a B.S. in Art Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP), my husband and I moved to Wilmington, NC. For 18 years, I have been teaching in the New Hanover County School system. Prior to Parsley, I taught at J.C. Roe and Alderman. I did take off two separate years to be home with my kids after they were born. Sophia, who is 10 and Curren, is 7. Sophia is in the 5th grade at Parsley. Curren is a 2nd grader this year. How time flies. It seems like only yesterday Sophia was starting kindergarten.
Some of my personal favorite media in art are painting and clay. Now, you can probably figure out why your child brings home several clay projects throughout the year. (they love it, too) I am happy doing what I love, teaching students the technique and beauty of art.
