Mr. Davis


Art Image


My name is John Davis and I've been teaching art at Northside for 23 years.  I began my teaching career at Rayburn Middle School and I am now in my 18th year at Rudder.  I graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design.  I received my Secondary Art Certification from U.T.S.A.  I am married and have two boys.  I enjoy the outdoors, traveling and sports. 

I have been the Elective Department Coordinator for nine years.  I also help coordinate a Fine Arts Camp in the summer.  I am also one of the District's Intramural Supervisors.  The Intramural program is an after-school program which runs from January to May each year.  All students are eligible to participate in this 2-day a week program.  Information about Intramurals will be placed on this website later this year.

I also have a passion for baseball and am a diehard Orioles fan, having been born in Baltimore. 

I look forward to teaching your child to be as creative and artistic as possible.  We have a lot of great activities planned for this year along with various art shows and contests.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
