Mrs. Beth Kroupa
This is my 15th year teaching in Yonkers Public Schools. I feel incredibly lucky to be teaching art which is something I am extremely passionate about. We all make art and design decisions everyday. The clothes we pick to wear, the car we drive, the food label that attracts us in the store, our phone covers, shoes, etc. Learning about art, and becoming aesthetically literate helps us in all we do. Please see the attached photo!
Before teaching I was a Fashion Designer for the junior market. I spent a great deal of time working in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea. I then embarked upon this journey of a second career teaching art.
My classes will be conducted on Microsoft Teams. This year I am excited to also be using Nearpod! In addtion I will be using Class Dojo for parent contact. Attendance will be taking daily.
Supply list can be found on the class expectation tab.
I look forward to working with all of you!
