My name is Kimberly Cover. I have a certification to teach Art grades K-12 and I have taught every grade level from pre-k to college classes. I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Drawing from Fontbonne University in St. Louis, Missouri, and a Masters Degree in Painting from there as well. I have been teaching in the public school system since 2000. I am certified as a Library Media Specialist. I got certified as a Library Media Specialist because education is very important to me - it is a personal goal of mine to never stop learning. Also, both content (Art and Library) are Cross-Curricular and that is very appealing to me as an educator. I have always believed that one content can reinforce another and reach all learning styles.
Outside of the classroom, I am an artist. I have artwork overseas and throughout the United States. By trade, I am a technician of drawing; by choice, I am an engraver. My father is a custom knife maker, so I grew up traveling the country going to knife shows and every member of my immediate family is involved in this business - I come from a family of artists and craftsman. I spend as much time drawing into metal as I do teaching kids how to draw on paper. I still attend and acquire work at knife shows throughout the year and I am a full time engraver over the summer months when I'm not teaching.
When I do get free time, which is rare, I like to be outdoors and spend time with my family.
