My name is Ronie McBride. I have taught art at Patton Junior High since August of 2003. I currently teach Art 8/9 classes, Art 7 classes and Advanced art for 8/9 grades. In May of 2003, I graduated from Park University holding a BA with a double major: fine art and graphic design. In 2009, I graduated from Baker University with a Master’s degree in curriculum and instruction. Prior to 2003 I was a Graphic Designer in the sign industry for nine years.
Art is a way for students to learn about their world using creative thinking and discovery. I love my career and working at Patton Jr. High. I am looking forward to working with and getting to know each of my students.
"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls." Pablo Picasso
