About Me: Welcome to the Art Room! I am Lisa Pavlak, and I am thrilled to be teaching art at Oak Orchard Elementary here in Medina! I am looking forward to beginning my 11th year of teaching art, and my 3rd here with your children in Medina. I know we are going to have fun creating and learning together. I had a wonderful summer preparing for the BEST art year YET! We have so much to look forward to, including having our Medina student artists' K-12 artwork displayed at Buffalo's Albright-Knox Art Gallery this fall! In addition to the art part of my life, my family and I enjoyed trips to Virginia Beach, camping at Allegany and Letchworth State Parks, completing "playground challenges" with my kids, visiting the zoo, Science Museum, family in Rochester, Olcott Beach Carousel, and enjoying time with friends and family. What a memorable summer!
I currently live in Wheatfield near Niagara Falls with my wonderful husband Mike, and our two amazing kids, Annabella and Max. I graduated from SUNY Buffalo with my Master's in Art Education K-12 in 2012, from Daemen College with my Bachelor's in Visual Arts Education and Psychology in 2009, and from Niagara County Community College with an Associate's in Fine Arts in 2006. Starting this fall, I will be volunteerting as a Relgious Education teacher for 5th and 6th grade students at my Church, and I am excited to bring my love for teaching there as well. I am a Disney F-A-N, so I strive to create a "magical" art room where students of all talents feel safe and excited to make their own artworks. Much of my inspiration also comes from the amazing Tennessee art teacher, Cassie Stephens, who you might have seen on Netflix's "Nailed It!" this past spring!
Thank you for continuing to make me feel so welcome in your district family! Here's to 2019-2020!
