Hello! Welcome to my web page.  My name is Jill, and I have been teaching art for 24 years.  15 of those, right here in Montgomery.  And this year I get the privilege to continue an amazing second year for the art department at Lake Creek High School!!!!What a great place to be!  I grew up in Houston and took art all through my school years there.  I then attended Texas Christian University where I earned my BFA in Art Education in 1995.  I enjoy teaching  Art  and sharing my passion for creativity with young people!  I really love working with the students and heading up the Art Club committee.  Art Club is the largest club on campus, boasting over 150 members!  We are very proud of the amount of kids interested in our department and what we do.
