Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jennifer Nagle
I am a graduate of Northern Illinois University with A Bachelor of Fine Art emphasizing in Studio Arts. I worked for many years as a specialized painter and designer. After being asked to teach an art class I fell in love with teaching and received my Illinois Teaching certificate from Trinity Christian College. I worked for 18 years teaching through Wheaton Colleges, Community School of the Arts. and District 33 in West Chicago. I am excited to be teaching Art Foundations, Jewelry, and Pottery at OHS.
Through interactive instruction, I ask students to join me in investigating personal expression, art criticism, art history, and art aesthetics. My goal is to expand the students' appreciation and understanding of art. Most importantly, I want the student to become equipped to use art as a tool for self-expression and communication.
