Jennifer Ortega

Art Teacher

I will be starting my 22nd year of teaching art at J. L. Thomas Elementary. I graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Visual Art Studies. My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary this year. I have two wonderful children, Jayla and JJ, and a beautiful sheltie named Onyx. I spend most of my free time creating artwork, including photography, glass fusing, mosaic, and digital designs. I believe every child is an artist…..a bit of creativity from each child will shine to make the world a better place.
