Proud to be a Title 1 School
Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Arts in Art Education +18 National Board Certified in Art Education
My name is Jennie Burns. This is my twelfth year as the art teacher here at Leaphart! I am a graduate of Irmo High School. I received my degree in Art Education from USC, Go Cocks! Outside of school I love to travel, spend time with my family and friends and create art of my own. My passion is photography!
The arts play a vital role in a child's education, they promote self-expression, self-efficacy, social skills, problem-solving skills, critical thinking, and life-long learning skills. I hope to encourage your little artist this year to learn, create, study art from all different artist and cultures around the word and have a chance to experience and explore a variety of mediums! We will be painting, making prints, sculpting things out of clay, drawing, making collages, making paper and many other things!
*While we are currently out of school please feel free to e-mail me: photos of your artwork, any questions you might have, or just to say hello!! I am missing all of my amazing little artist terribly!!
