Mrs. Jeannie Toomey
My name is Jeannie Toomey and I have been teaching art at Fairport Harding High/Middle School for 29 years. I graduated from Kent State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art with a dual minor in secondary education and dance. I also have a Master’s degree in the Art of Teaching. My personal philosophy and responsibility is to provide opportunities that encourage growth in visual expression, critical thinking and problem solving. I believe it is important because it has a significant positive impact on student's overall sense of achievement. Art expression is also an effective tool for learning concepts in a multitude of other content areas and I very much enjoy experiencing this with my students.
