Mrs. Loretta Bradshaw
Hello! I am Loretta Bradshaw, the art teacher. This is my fourteenth year teaching at Stinson, but both my children were Stars stars, so we have been part of the Stinson family since it opened. I have enjoyed teaching fourth grade and third grade, but the art room has my heart. I have enjoyed my own part-time art business (since 2002), so it is great to teach art full time. Like many of you, I am a first generation American. As well, when my children were young, we lived in Australia, so I can relate to educating my children in a different environment from where I went to school. My wonderful husband is an engineer (opposites do attract) and my children successfully navigated Plano ISD and both graduated from OU. They are out on their own enjoying great careers. You may catch me walking our sweet dog Cooper around the neighborhood.
My favorite part about teaching is watching children trust their own creative process. It is exciting to see them become creative problem solvers and improve their art skills every year.
Grades 3-5 document course work in their Stinson Digital Portfolio. Students can access their portfolio through their Google drive or Google Classroom. Portfolios will show the process each week as well as the completed project.
Grades 1-2 will be working toward a digital portfolio, but will also maintain a paper portfolio of their projects.
Kinder will keep all projects in a paper portfolio.

While most of our supplies are labeled washable, this doesn't always mean they will wash out every fabric. It is best if your student wears clothes that can get messy or leave an oversized t-shirt in their locker to toss on over their clothes.
