LINDSEY BARNETT

Art
[email protected] My name is Lindsey Barnett and I am very excited to be teaching art at Stone Mountain!! This is my eleventh year teaching in Douglas County School District as an art teacher, but my second year at Stone Mountain Elementary. As your student’s art teacher, I align my lessons to the Colorado Visual Art Standards which include the role of artists in society, seeing art as a form of communication, expression, and part of culture. Students will experience the artistic process, principles of art and elements of design, and how to talk like artists. I love to also connect art lessons with content from the classroom and to art history. All projects will help students use their imaginations and creativity! When I am not teaching art, I spend my free time with my husband, Ted. We spend our time outdoors hiking, skiing, camping, sitting by the pool, traveling the World and of course creating! I enjoy reading, playing board games, and spending time with family and friends. I have an adorable two year old niece and a hysterical five year old nephew. We have a fur-baby bernedoodle named Tuk who loves to snuggle on the couch with us.

This is my fourth year at SME and I am so excited to be teaching PE here! I was born and raised in Texas, where I graduated from TCU - GO FROGS! My husband and I have been married for 15 years and we have two children, Madelyn (12) and Blake (10). We moved to Colorado almost 6 years ago, and we are absolutely in love with everything Colorado has to offer. We enjoy lots of activities in the Colorado sunshine, like hiking, biking, and exploring!
