Hi everyone! I'm your virtual teacher, Emma Karpinski! I am a student at Penn State, in my third year, planning on becoming an art teacher after I graduate. I'm excited to be working with you and to see what amazing things each of you create! I thought that I'd tell you a bit more about myself.
I am originally from Connecticut, and came to State College, Pennsylvania 3 years ago for school. I am the first in my family to go to college. In my free time, I like to play my ukulele, spend time in nature, write, and read books (my current favorite is Wonder by R. J. Palacio). I also love to make all types of art, and put a few pictures of some of my projects below. I started 3D printing this year and think that it's amazing that all of you are doing so, too!
Along with making art, I love to teach it! Before creating this webquest, I've taught preschool, kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students, as well as college students and adults. I spend most of my time working with the preschool students, and make art with them in sketchbooks, practice photography with them, and create collaborative art. You can see more about that by going to my main website.
You'll notice that you are the first class in your grade that I am teaching, and I can't wait to see how you all will wow me with your big ideas!
