Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ellen Watts and I am an Art Educator with 11 years of strong teaching experience at both the middle school and high school level. I am super excited to be joining the Shepton High School Team as an Art Educator. I spent the last 11 years teaching Theatre and Technical Theatre, 9 of those years here in Plano ISD. Last year I was asked to make the move to the Art department at Plano Senior High School part time and decided to make the move to Art full time this year. I was the Technical Theatre Director and Art teacher at Plano Senior High School for two years and the Theatre Teacher at Vines High School for 7 years prior to that. I am a native Planoite and a proud product of Plano ISD. I attended Brinker Elementary, Renner Middle School, Shepton High School and graduated from Plano West Senior High School. After graduating from Plano ISD, I attended Baylor University in Waco, Texas where I received a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Theatre Design with an emphasis in Costume Design. I live in East Dallas with my husband and my cat Arlo.
