Meet the Teacher

Mrs. Olivia Gennaro

Hello! My name is Olivia M. Gennaro and I am a graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania.  I was the president of the National Art Education Association IUP student chapter.  We traveled to national conventions all over the US presenting, and finally winning the National NAEA Student Chapter Award my senior year.  Currently I am teacher Art History 101 through Penn Highlands Community College, running Arts & All LLC offering summer camps, art classes, and more and working on my masters in Art Edcuation through Kutztown University.  I find all genres of the arts are very important to expanding our students minds and our community.  I love to bring together the community and the students by creating projects and events that can bring friends, families, and community members in to the district.  My students are not only art students in my classroom but they are artists! I am here to help them in decision making, problem solving, and creative thinking.  My goal is to end with a group of confident, independent artists!  I am currently presenting around Pennsylvania about the awesome Student Ran events that are held at our school.  Through Pennsylvania Art Eudcation Association I am am on many committees that recognize the importantce of art in all areas of education!  I love collaborating with other teachers, artists, parents and community members, so if you have an idea please share.  If you have anyone questions, concerns, idea's, etc. please contact me!
