Art, Teacher

Teaches in: Alameda County

I am Wendi Bushehry, Ms. Wendi, in class. I have been doing something artful my whole life. I have my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Dance and Art. I danced for 15 yrs. I went on with graphic design and then started a family and created two beautiful children. It was in their school I discovered that they had no art or very little, so I did some research and started to teach art. It's been ten years and I haven't turned back. I was a student in the first class of the Teaching Artist Institute program. I have been on the ACOE Steering Committee this pass year for "Mapping The Next 10 Years" for art education. It is very exciting to be apart of this committee. Through the arts, children have a unique means of expression that captures their passions and emotions and allows them to explore ideas, subject matter, and culture. My mission is to find or create the best plans for teaching problem solving, critical thinking, teamwork, and have fun while learning the elements and principles of art. Sparkle is my super power and I am very passionate about getting the arts back in schools.
