Mrs. Amy Semifero

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I hope you are as excited as I am to call yourself an Eagle!  The 2018-2019 school year marks my 18th year as an educator.   I have experience not only teaching various levels of Art and its mediums, but also various Career and Technical Education courses such as Digital Interactive Media and Digital Design and Media Production.  This year at Prosper High School, I will be teaching the Art 1 course.  Art I is a survey course allowing students the opportunity to apply the elements of art and the principles of design to an array of original works, while studying artists and art periods. Various studio areas to be covered include drawing, printmaking, painting, ceramics, sculpture, and textiles.  I am looking forward to a fun, exciting and successful year!  

 

About Mrs. Semifero:

I moved to the North Texas area in 2001 after receiving my undergraduate degrees from the University of Texas at Austin.  In 2007, I received my Masters Degree of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of North Texas.  My enthusiasm for my subject area comes from sharing what I have learned with students and colleagues and is the reason I spend my summer vacations in continued professional development studies.  It is my goal to help others make connections with art and technology both professionally and personally.  I want individuals to realize how these two subject areas enhance their everyday life, just like it has mine.  My hobbies beyond the realms of art and technology include sewing, traveling and spending time with my family.
