Ms. Laura Castaneda
I teach AP Studio Art 2D & Design and Drawing as well as other art classes here at PHS. I am so glad that you will be joining me this year. This is my 9th year teaching and I love what I do. My past career experiences include, working for Communities In Schools as an art teacher for their after school programs, as a Campus Coordinator and Site Coordinator. I also taught art to 6th and 9th-12th graders at a Houston area charter school for a few years. I grew up in Pearland and couldn't wait for the oppotunity to teach here at home.
In my off time I enjoy creating art, spending time with my loved ones and attending church with my hubby-to be. I will be married this October. Let's have a great year!
Mission Statement: Art is essential in today's workforce. I strongly believe that art empowers young people in all areas or fields of study. Artistic creativity is necessary for learning as well as for character building and self-esteem. I hope that you are empowered in my classroom so that it drives you towards success!
