I am a NYS certified art teacher k-12, and I taught elementary art in the public school system before having my daughter. I have been featured in the newspaper and three of my art lessons were published in popular art teaching Magazines. Passionate creating and teaching art, leaving my teaching position was one of the hardest decisions I ever had to make, but I knew in time I would teach again. And here I am!!! My teaching philosophy is to provide every student with a well-rounded art education in order to create creative, culturally aware, analytic thinkers. I am truly passionate about both creating and teaching art. Art has enriched my life in so many ways and taught me about history, as well as many social issues and multiculturalism. Most importantly, art has taught me the values of patience, determination, and that anything is possible if you can imagine it!
Jocelyn Lavorata is a New York State Certified art teacher with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Adelphi University. After she studied abroad in Florence, Italy it had sparked a continuous passion for her to receive her Masters of Arts Degree in Art History and Criticism at Stony Brook University. She has worked at different companies bringing art to schools, libraries, camps and alternative environments to promote learning and discovery in art making. In addition to a strong passion for art and art history, she has found a love for the interdisciplinary theme and connections that can be found with art. Jocelyn looks forward to continuing her own education as well as learning alongside her students.
