Hello Artists,

My name is Mrs. McConnell and I am the Visual Arts teacher at Kingsland High School.  I have been here in the district for 10 years but as a High School Para, I am very excited to start my teaching profession here with the students I know and the school that feels like home.  I will be teaching 7th grade and then 9-12 elective art courses.  Here on my page, you can go to classes to access the Google Classroom page of all my classes.

I currently live in Ostrander, MN with my spouse, daughter, 2 dogs, and 3 cats. I grew up in Chatfield, MN with two of my brothers and my mom.

I graduated high school in 1997, and currently hold a BA in Psychology and my MA in Education.  I am currently attending classes at Saint Mary's University to take care of a few extra classes.
I have a huge passion for art and I am looking forward to helping your students find their passion for it as well.
