Hello! I am proud to be able to have the opportunity to offer your child instruction in the Fine Arts! As a teacher, I wish to create a student-centered classroom focusing on developing and reinforcing critical thinking skills through activities that foster active learning. I firmly believe in the effectiveness of art to be a communication tool that students can use to feel more confident in their individuality and ultimately to be successful in their adult lives. As a facilitator, I am aware of the importance of guiding the learning process, and believe that maintaining open lines of communication is the key to success.

Mrs. Kiba Jacobson
My name is Kiba Jacobson, I live in Denton with my 14 yr old son and husband Justin. I graduated with my BFA from UNT, then later went on to earn my MA in Art Education also from UNT. This will be my 9th year teaching art, but my first year teaching in Denton ISD. I am thrilled because I am a Dentonite-- I even graduated from Denton High School back when it was the only High School in Denton! I was raised by my Mom who is also an artist. Art is something that to me comes second nature, but I also understand that to many may seem intimidating at first. I hope I can lessen any hesitation students may feel when it comes to exploring Art. I look forward to working with and getting to know your child as they begin to truely blossom into the person they wish to be.
