Mrs. Jackson, Art

Susan Jackson has been the art teacher at Carlos Coon Elementary since 1989.  She grew up in Dallas and attended Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas.  Before teaching at Carlos Coon she taught in the Edgewood School District.  She loves her job and hopes to stay at Carlos Coon for a long time.  When asked who her favorite artist is, she finds it difficult to answer the question.  "There are so many artists that I admire.  There are some artists that I admire because they were determined to create art even though the dictators of the art world were against them because of their gender, race or religion.  I admire other artists because of the brave risks they took in creating new kinds of art.  Then there are artists that I admire because of the sheer beauty of their work."  She hopes that before every child leaves Carlos Coon that they will have at least one "favorite" artist.
