Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Shane Pevehouse, and I am the new art teacher at Paloma Creek Elementary. Let me just start off saying how excited I am to fill this role. I cannot wait to begin exploring the world of art with every student here. To be able to journey with each student here through their discovery and deeper understanding of art is something that I am so honored and humble to be doing. To tell you a little about myself, I graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Studio Art specializing in fibers. I've loved art for as long as I can remember. I grew up in North Texas and currently live in Denton, Texas. I enjoy coffee and jazz just as any true "Dentonite" would. This is my first year as a full-time teacher, although I spent the last year at Denton High as a Life Skills Instructional Aide. There I fell in love with working among students with special needs and gaining invaluable experience as I took over the art room when the current art teacher left for maternity leave. Teaching is something that I have aimed for, for years. Guiding students to become creative thinkers and getting paid for it truly is a dream come true.
