My name is Mr. Mennsfield. I graduated from the University of North Texas with a B.A. in Art. ( GO MEAN GREEN!!) However, I'm from Oklahoma so I am a BIG Oklahoma Sooner fan!! BOOMER!! I have been in education for thirteen years eight of which have been at Lakeview MS. I am a big time sports fan most of my sports activity are football and track! Most of my free time is with my wife and my son. I enjoy creating art as well as art history. My goals this year is for my students to truly learn the knowledge of art and to learn and be aware of art as it is all around us. I look forward to teaching art to my students every year. I think that meaningful and relevant work engages students in profound learning!
