Virginia (Ginny) Shurlds
  • Welcome to my art class. I'm Virginia (Ginny) Shurlds. I am married with two adult children and two pet cats. When time permits, I love art (of course!), reading, the beach, mountain biking, and following the Mississippi State Bulldogs.

    This will be my 25th year to teach, all in St. Tammany Parish Schools. In addition to teaching art, I have taught regular education 2nd and 3rd grades and gifted 1st-3rd grades, and have also taught in the SPARKLE enrichment program at the University of New Orleans. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Mississippi State University, a Master of Education degree from Southeastern Louisiana University, and a Master's Plus 30 through the University of New Orleans. I am also certified in Art and in Academically Gifted.

    My goal is for every student to enjoy and appreciate art, while practicing new skills and learning art history.
