I'd like to introduce you to Candace DeTone!
Candace taught elementary art for twenty-five years. Fifteen of those years were at Woodland Elementary for the Avondale School District. Prior to that she taught for six and a half years at Morgan Park Academy.
Her favorite thing about teaching art is sharing the joy of creating, sparking young minds, and seeing children learn and grow.
Candace's most memorable moment was "when a child had an 'ahah' moment, or when I could hear a pin drop in the classroom because students were in flow, or when I looked around the room to see a classroom full of kids busy working and fully engaged- either alone or with each other, or when a student told me or showed me the special way that they had interpreted a project."
Candace's favorite art quote:
Since retiring in 2015, Candace has been keeping busy traveling, gardening, getting her house in order, and setting up a ceramic/painting studio.
