Biography

Hello! My name is Joe Bristol and I will be teaching art at Wakonda and Edison Elementary.

 

    I started working for Omaha Public Schools in 2012, when I became a paraprofessional for a kindergarten classroom at Gomez Heritage Elementary. It was there that I realized that I wanted to work with students and help them learn through creating art. I already had my Bachelors in Studio Arts, so I decided to go back to college and earn my teaching certificate at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I continued working as a para as I completed college.

   

    When I finished college, I substituted for various schools until I was asked to finish the year as a long term substitute teacher for Wakonda Elementary. I liked it so much, I decided to stay and continue teaching art to these fabulous students. I just began the year with Edison, but getting to know the students has been an absolute joy!

 

    I look forward to providing students with new and exciting art lessons where they can explore their creativity!
