Hello, my name is Mrs. McKown. This is my 10th year of teaching high school art. I previously worked at East Knox from 2012-2015, when I was “Miss Bailey,” then I taught at River View from 2015-2020. I returned to East Knox in 2020 and currently teach art to grades 7-12. I am also the Varsity Cheer Advisor. My husband, Wess, teaches high school social studies at the Career Center and coaches varsity football and Jr high track here at East Knox.
I graduated from Utica High School in 2005, and received both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees from The Ohio State University. I enjoy learning new things and I try to continually improve what I teach and how I teach every single year. I enjoy creating many different kinds of art forms and therefore I would like to explore a wide variety of art mediums with all of my students, while still covering what is required to meet the Ohio Visual Arts Content Standards, set by the Ohio Department of Education. I’m excited to watch all of my students learn and grow as I will also learn and grow with them.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. The best way to reach me is through email. Thank you very much. Go Bulldogs!
