AMPS: Art, Music, & P.E.

Movement, creativity, self expression, all important pieces of early childhood education. Wilmot Elementary is proud to provide Art, Music, and Physical Education for all students. Once a day, students will participate in one of three “specials.”  Each classroom teacher provides families with a calendar that includes the rotating schedule so students can dress for a mess, a dance party, or a lap around the school.

Bio: With more than 14 years of teaching art, Liz has adopted a unique curriculum. Based on TAB (Teaching for Artistic Behavior) and the Studio Habits of Mind, students develop creative problem-solving skills, perseverance and critical thinking while using the classroom as their open studio. They develop and plan their own projects to incorporate the artistic concept they're studying. This approach to art education transcends the bounds of art and promotes skills kids can take with them for life. As a result, Liz has been recognized as 2018 Colorado Elementary Art Educator of the Year. Liz also brings art directly to the community. Together with Evergreen elementary students, teachers, and community members, she organized, designed and painted the mural that graces the tunnel wall between downtown and Evergreen Lake. Liz grew up in Jeffco and is a Bear Creek High School graduate. She lives in Evergreen with her husband and two sons.

So, she received her Master’s Degree/Teaching Certification at Prescott College, while adding a PE endorsement at Metro State College of Denver. As a certified ski instructor, D licensed soccer coach, and letters in Field Hockey, Soccer, and Track and Field, Sylvie draws on her own achievements to keep lessons fun yet purposeful.
