    About The Teacher
    purple line  Dear Kyrene Families, 
       I am so happy to be the Art Teacher at Manitas and Mirada for the 2018-2019 school year. I hold a B.S. in Art Education/Art Therapy and a M.A. from Adelphi University. I'm certified in Art Education (K-12), Elementary Ed. (K-5), and SEI (K-12) 
      My educational  experience includes teaching primary grades as a regular classsroom teacher for 8 years.  Since coming to Arizona from NY, I worked as a Faculty Associate at ASU in the American English Cultural Program.  Within the Kyrene District,  I taught Art at Monte Vista and Manitas, SEI at Lomas, as well as, substituted for two years. This is my 6th year as the Art Teacher at Manitas.  
           I am married and have two boys that both attended Kyrene schools. 
    In my free time, I enjoy hiking, swimming, painting, pottery, and especially traveling and spending time with my family.  I am thrilled to be both a parent and educator in such a premier school district. It is an honor to be working with your child and look forward to a creative, fun filled school year. If you would like to volunteer, please email me at lnoun@kyrene.org  
      Creatively yours,
