Deborah Weir - Art
I can’t imagine a world without the arts.  When someone is creating art, they are really looking and exploring the world around them.  Art is pure expression, which helps us communicate our feelings. 
 
I always knew I’d want a career in education and art.  I earned my Masters of Fine Art from William Paterson University.  I also have a Masters in Special Education from Felician College, and Bachelors in Education from Fairleigh Dickinson University.  Recently I became Nationally Board Certified in Art, which has positively impacted my teaching.
 
My 20-year career in education has given me the opportunity to follow my dream of teaching in a variety of settings.  I’ve taught students from kindergarten to ninth grade in the visual arts and instructed in the regular classroom in grades 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade.  I’m currently teaching art to k-5 students in the public school setting and always plan on keeping the arts a part of my life.
