My name is Amy Combs. I am a member of the Southwest region and a teacher in the Sycamore School District in Cincinnati. E. H. Greene Intermediate is my professional home, where I have been teaching for 16 years. I am passionate about art education and finding innovative practices in our field that encourage creative expression and the life-long appreciation of art. As an artist, I am still exploring my artistic journey by fine-tuning figurative drawings and paintings in my spare time.
I am thrilled to be the Elementary Division Chair. I am here to advocate for you, the children we teach, and our profession as a whole. Contact me with questions, concerns, or new programs you feel would support these goals and your journey in Elementary Art Education.
My goal in representing you is to bring connectivity to this community. I will do that by offering relevant programming, professional development, and community-building opportunities. I will also highlight a teacher each month as a part of an “OAEA teacher feature.” If you would like to be considered for this profile, message me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I want to celebrate your victories and honor all of the hard work you are doing.
I encourage you to be more active in OAEA. An easy way to stay up to date is to follow our Facebook page, OAEA Elementary Division https://www.facebook.com/groups/138194937586/, and our Instagram account, https://www.instagram.com/elem_div_oaea/?hl=en. There you can find information, news, and activities that keep you connected. Keep shining brightly art stars. It is my privilege to serve you and walk with you on your journey.
