My name is Wynita Harmon and I teach art at an amazing elementary school in Plano, TX. I graduated with by bachelor’s degree in art education from the University of Central Oklahoma. In addition, I have a master’s degree in human relations with an emphasis in organizational leadership from the University of Oklahoma and am also currently working on my doctoral degree in educational leadership. I have been teaching for 11 years in Title 1 schools and absolutely love it! Sharing my passion with children is what I love to do.
In my classroom, I strive to provide authentic, meaningful experiences for my students that promote innovation, creativity, and collaboration and that challenge students to use problem-solving and critical thinking skills. I implement TAB and choice-based art approaches and provide a safe place that allows my students the freedom to express themselves and grow through trial and error. Reflection and drawing connections to real-world experiences are other aspects I encourage in the art studio.
Outside of the classroom, I love to cook, travel, spend time with loved ones, style events, and work on my brush lettering! I am thrilled to be a part of the AOE Team and look forward to sharing and learning from all of you!
