Degrees and Certifications:
Early and Middle Childhood Art B.F.A. in Art Education, University of South Carolina National Board Certified Teacher
Hi there! I'm Mrs. Butcher, and I am an artist and an art teacher. This is my thirteenth year of teaching, and achieved National Board Certification in 2017. I graduated from Lexington High School, then attended Appalachian State University as a forensic chemistry major. I graduated from The University of South Carolina with a BFA in art education with a studio concentration in drawing. The arts teach respect, empathy, connection, higher order thinking, self-understanding, social and environmental awareness, and visual literacy.

I live with my husband, our two young sons, and two dogs. I love reading, football, science, cooking, the mountains, and rainbows. I love giving back to the community that raised me and working with our awesome students, families, and community! I hope my classroom is a place where you feel loved and appreciated. Everyone is welcome in the art room.
