Meet the Teacher

Hello and welcome to my art room! My name is Stephanie Cline and I have been teaching art here at Eagle View Elementary School in Elko-New Market since September of 2009.

My experience~ I just recently moved from Maryland where I taught elementary art in the Washington County School system for the past 15 years. I have taught in five different elementary schools, a few in the city, a few out in the country and one being a school centered on special education ranging from autistic to severe and profound handicapped students.

A little about me~ Our adventure to Minnesota began with my husband's job relocation with Delta/Northwest. After accepting the art position here at Eagle View in August of 09, we made the 18 hour drive with the 3 kids, the dog and the U-Haul to find temporary housing within just 5 days. After selling our home back east, we have now settled in Dakota County. We have 2 boys and a girl ages 10.5, 14 and 15.5 and made the decision in the fall of 08 to adopt internationally (long before we ever thought we'd be moving to Minnesota!) After receiving a referral for a baby girl from South Korea, we finally got our travel call on July 28th 2010 and flew to Seoul in August to bring her home. It seems like she has been a part of our family forever:) Now, after being on leave for the first half of that year, I am finally back to work in the art room!

I am very excited to be teaching at Eagle View. My first year here has been wonderful getting to know your children. I hope your children have enjoyed coming to the art room and I hope you'll utilize this site to keep up with what your child is doing in art class. Please check in often and feel free to contact me about anything!
