Hello! My name is Barbara Farrell. I am very excited to be a part of the Ross School family. I come to you with eighth years experience teaching art in grades K - 8. I am also a certified yoga instructor. I am passionate about SEL and I find many ways to connect my art lessons to the SEL standards.
I beleive all children should feel comfortable and confident expressing their ideas. An education in the arts is a pathway to expanding our understanding the world around us through a visual language. We will grow more connected to our community here in South Jersey and we will learn about the communities of many different cultures around the world.
I can not wait to see what the children create.
I will periodically add links to some of my favorite art resources below.
Have fun exploring.
