Spotlight - Mrs. Jill Tolley

Submitted by susan.bird on
Mrs. Jill Tolley

Mrs. Jill Tolley is our art teacher.  She has been working with our students for seven years.  She is very talented and helps the students to develop their talents in art.  She keeps our main halls decorated with amazing art projects.  We love having Mrs. Tolley at Brookside.  

Mrs. Tolley graduated from Maize High School in Kansas and from BYU in therapeutic recreation.  She grew up in Kansas, the oldest of 8 kids.  She has been married for almost 29 years and has 4 kids--all of whom are in college right now!  She loves reading and traveling--her favorite place to be besides her home is Europe!

What are you looking forward to most about this school year? I love introducing art from around the world to students and seeing them develop new skills.

What do you love about your job?  Seeing a student who doesn't think they can, actually find out that they can!

What is something no one may know about you? I did not take any art in junior high, high school or college!

Is there anything else you would like parents and/or students to know about you?I believe that if you really want to be able to do something, be patient and keep trying and eventually you can!
