Welcome to Art!! My name is Ryan Leavitt and this will be my fourteenth year teaching Elementary Art. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Art Education from the University of Nevada Las Vegas and earned a Master of Arts in Education in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Phoenix.
My lovely wife Lori is also an educator and we are excited to have our three girls attend Cockrell this year.
One of the joys I have of teaching art is helping students understand that art is about showing people the way YOU see things. Also, ideas come from the inside and outside as we make connections to what we love, know and to the world around us. It's imperative that the way art is taught honors each child's need and desire to be creative.
I'm looking forward to a fantastic year teaching our amazing artists at Cockrell Elementary.
