Welcome to my Tchefuncte Middle School Talented Visual Arts website. My name is Ms. Gladney and I am happy to be teaching Talented Visual Arts to 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students here at TMS.
I have been teaching with St. Tammany Talented Arts program since 1998, 18 years based at TMS. Prior to this I taught in private schools for 13 years in Louisiana, Oregon, and Texas. I attended Louisiana State University where I received a Masters in Art Education with Art Education K-12 certification.
I look forward to time with new and returning families at events during the year: starting with TMS open house. Please save the date 11/4/17 for our Talented Arts Program Parish Festival, at Lakeshore High School. Also, we usually participate in 3-Rivers Art Festival student exhibit-11/11-12/2017, Covington; PTA Reflections, TMS George Durrett Art Showcase, and Artists in the Capitol event.
I am very excited about the upcoming school year. My goal is to help students create, respond, and connect interests while exploring art techniques and a variety of media. I am looking forward to a great year of growth and creativity for the students!
“Living, Laughing, and Learning the Arts of Louisiana”
Sincerely, Ms. Gladney
