Mr. Robert Pyles, Principal of Our Lady of Refuge School, is pleased to announce that Mrs. Marie Leadford is joining the school faculty as our new Art Teacher.
This is Mrs. Leadford’s third year teaching Art and her first year teaching at Our Lady of Refuge. She previously taught Elementary Art in West Bloomfield. Mrs. Leadford received my bachelor’s degree in Art Education at Central Michigan University and is currently working towards her masters at Wayne State University.
I am looking forward to the challenge of teaching Kindergarten through Eighth grade this year. The curriculum will include the practice of a wide range of mediums, study of important art history, and the completion of many cultural projects. I am excited to get to know all of my new students and foster their artistic abilities. Mrs. Leadford
Mr. Pyles commented, “I am pleased to have Mrs. Leadford join our faculty. She will bring a new vision, perspective and vitality to the Art program that we are able to offer our students at OLR.”
