Core Knowledge Charter School
Hello! My name is Ladonna and this is my 6th year teaching art at PCK. I have
lived in Colorado for 16 years with 15years being right here in Parker. I grew
up in Southern California and graduated from Cal State Fullerton. After
graduating, my husband and I picked up and moved to Colorado for a change
and to follow our dreams. We had always dreamed of living here and raising a
family in this beautiful state. I was fortunate to stay home with my children
until they started school. Both of my children attend PCK. My son is in 8th grade
and my daughter is in 6th grade.
When I'm not working, I enjoy being with my family doing just about anything
or nothing at all. Over the summer I went to Grand Cayman with my family and spent a week playing
in the ocean, seeing green sea turtles, swimming with the sting rays and dolphins. I took a
wonderful and inspiring art class for elementary school teachers and I'm so excited to show the
children some new techniques and lessons. A perfect day for me would always include something
with the arts: seeing a musical, taking an art class, visiting art museums or a concert. I
also like to do YOGA and walk.
As you can see, I've got the perfect job. It never feels like work to me
because I truly love what I do. Most of the children are excited to come to art
and their enthusiasm inspires me. There is something special about children's
artwork. I love seeing art through their eyes.
