Hello my name is Julie Gacsko. I share my love of the visual arts with our 6-12th graders. Year after year, since 1999, I have found teaching art to be exciting and fun. Seeing students tap into their creative side and express themselves through art is most rewarding. I enjoy learning about the history of art from traveling throughout the United States and Europe. Camping, kayaking, and listening to live music are a few of my favorite things. Exploring nature and being outdoors is where I gravitate. Studying nature and learning about the environment is something I share with my students and is often the focus of the art I create.
