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.
