Mrs. Byrd

Mrs. Emilie Byrd is the art teacher at Gary Road Intermediate School. At Millsaps College, Mrs. Byrd studied Studio Art and Education with the intent to teach art. Though she enjoys printmaking and papermaking, her favorite media are pencil and pen. At GRI, Mrs. Byrd seeks to engage the students with new materials and artistic processes, while also providing them with the necessary skills they need to use the materials. Art class is a creative outlet for the students to learn confidence and self-expression through their artwork. Mrs. Byrd ensures that each student is engaged, is understood, and is enjoying the lesson. Her overarching classroom rules are: "Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Ready to Learn." Currently, the students are learning about Form, Value, Landscapes, and Space.
