Hello Beautiful People!
My name is Jill Edmonds and I'm excited to say that this is my first year at Robert Anderson!
My philosophy is centered on mutual respect and love; it is not possible to grow in learning without trust.
I've worked with every demographic and every age of student, from K-4 to 12th grade, in Richland, Lexington, Anderson, and Greenville Counties. My biggest takeaway is that kindness is key.
I received my BA in Drawing and Painting and Art Education at South Carolina School of the Arts at Anderson University. I combine my understanding of student growth and learning with my knowledge and practice of higher education studio to make high-level assignments (things I didn't learn until college!) accessible for all grade-levels. Any assignment or skill can be modified to fit the needs of the individual student.
Speaking of those needs, I work with my students to establish goals to help them with LIFE, not just with ART. As the two go hand-in-hand for me, I help them manage their own frustrations, deadlines, and healthy practices to give them a more well-rounded educational experience.
