Professional Background: Mrs. Harvey’s passion for creativity and the arts has been a driving force in her volunteering for the last three years in the art studio at St. Stephen’s. Prior to St. Stephen’s, she has been raising her two children while working in various ministries over the years from Young Life and WyldLife to the children’s ministries at Grace Chapel in Wilsonville.
Philosophy of Education: Mrs. Harvey’s philosophy of education is a work in progress as this is her first foray into the classroom in an official capacity, as the assistant to the lead art teacher. She believes in the importance of learning art and the impact it has on a young and developing mind. She believes it is important to provide an environment where students feel encouraged to express their own reflection of God’s beauty through their works of art.
