Christine Woywod VeettilAdjunct Instructor
I remember seeing the Art of Education University booth at conferences and often looked to the website for clear and accessible content. About the time AOE became AOEU, it was also the right time for me to make a change. Making that change was one of the best decisions I ever made! Now, I am an elementary art teacher and an adjunct instructor for the Art of Education University. I enjoy both of these positions because they complement each other so well!
I am fascinated by interdisciplinary connections and contemporary artists who blur boundaries between disciplines. I am always enthusiastic about collaborating with other educators to design art-centered learning experiences for students.
