About Ms. Elfers

I am happy to work with students from 3 schools this year:

Woodland ES
Barnwell ES
Hembree Springs ES

I am from Ohio but have been living in Atlanta for many years now. I am a graduate of Xavier University in Cincinnati, OH as well as Georgia State University. I'm currently pursuing my masters degree from the University of West Georgia.

Making, seeing, and experiencing art has been an important part of my life, and I think art education is an invaluable part of children's school experience.

My focus this year is developing students' depth of knowledge.  I plan on encouraging higher order thinking skills through the use of open-ended essential questions, student-directed creative choices and assessments, as well as thought provoking discussions.
