Ms. Spyer earned her B.F.A. Degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago and her M.A.T. from Dominican University. She has taught Visual Art at BPE for five years now. Ms. Spyer has previously worked as a teaching artist for After School Matters and Parochial school's.
Ms. Spyer wants to make artistic learning relevant to students; culturally, contemporarily, and interest based. She wants students to see value in learning and creating art and then for those students to connect concepts to their curriculum.
Ms. Spyer loves the community of Brighton Park. We are committed to student voice and we solve issues diplomatically.
What Ms. Spyer loves most about visual art is that anyone can have an entry point into creating. For example, she recently have been making Jewelry and decided to sell some of my creations. She also recently read about a past president who has become an accomplished painter in his sixties and he had not done any art since his childhood.
