Hello! My name is Ciara Rimko.
I am the Art Special's teacher at Parkway Elementary as well as the Yearbook Editor. I have been at Parkway Elementary since 2013 and I have greatly enjoyed watching the students grow from year to year! I am an alumnus of Lewisville ISD and the University of North Texas. While I love all art forms, I'd have to say my favorites are ceramics and watercolor. I minored in Japanese and love different aspects of the culture.
In my classroom, I hope to provide a safe space for others to express and challenge themselves through art-making. I believe that art is a vessel to teach many skills such as patience, problem-solving, technical skill, and self-expression. I use art as a means of looking at other cultures, perspectives, and aesthetics to give students a well-rounded outlook on our world as a whole and our place in it.
