My name is Tim Bogatz, and I teach art at Bellevue East High School, a 9-12 school of 1,500 students just south of Omaha, Nebraska. As a teacher, I want my students to learn creativity, problem solving, higher order thinking skills; to do this, we use Drawing, Painting, Photography, Sculpture, Ceramics and whatever else might make its way into my classroom! I was honored to receive the title of 2015 Nebraska Secondary Art Educator of the Year.
Outside of school, most of my energy is focused on my wife, my kids, and my new puppy. I draw, I read, I write, and I run when I’m able to find the time.
I really look forward to contributing to AOE, and I hope the lessons, thoughts, ideas, and work I share will be worthwhile. Please feel free to contact me with questions, concerns, critiques, or conversation!
