Andrea Andrea just finished her fourth year of teaching. She continues to enjoy her positions as an elementary school art teacher and a teaching artist at the Cleveland Museum of Art. In addition, she completed a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Reading Specialization from Kent State University. In the fall, Andrea will be teaching at Blake Elementary School in Medina, Ohio where she is looking forward to meeting many new young artists who are excited about creating art.

At Kent State University, she was regularly named to the Dean's List, with a recent cumulative 3.87 GPA. During the spring 2013 semester, she was involved in an internship at the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Cleveland Institute of Art, where she was able to combine her educational background and museum experience to gain a sense of what is involved in a career as an archivist/art librarian. In the summer of 2013, she completed four classes and worked at the Cleveland Museum of Art in the Educational Department as a Teaching Assistant.

From Ohio, Andrea was a leader at her public high school. In addition to her stellar grades, she was involved in many activities, such as cheerleading, being an art ambassador to the Cleveland Museum of Art, and being Youth President of the Greater Cleveland Bowling Association. Moreover, Andrea's accomplishments have occurred despite significant family and personal hardships. She grew up in a single parent household with a very modest income, and Andrea herself has had over 20 surgeries as a result of being born with Goldenhar Syndrome.
