Mrs. Peg Dunsworth

 

Teaching experience: I taught elementary art for 9 years in the Mehlville School District.  I started in the Parkway School District at Green Trails Elementary.  After loving those students for six years, I had the opportunity to go to Parkway West High School.  I started at Parkway West in 2003 with Drawing, Painting, Design Arts and AP Studio Art.  Now I focus on Drawing, Painting, AP Studio Art as well as AP Art History.  I'm very proud to be teaching AP Art History online as well.

AP Reader: In year 2012 I was asked to be an AP Reader for the AP Studio Art Exam.  I am so proud of that accomplishment and have gotten asked back for each year to 2017.  I hope I keep that track record and continue that opportunity.  The reader experience has helped me to learn about the College Board process of grading the exams.  It has made me a better teacher, communicator and artist.  There are approximately 150 art educators from colleges and high schools across the country.  In year 2016, we read 56,000 portfolios in a seven-day period.

Trips with students: As an art educator, I have had the opportunity to go on several trips to Europe with our high school students.  We have been to Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, London and I have been a chaperone for two trips to Germany with the German students.  I have learned so much about the different cultures, art and architecture by taking students to other parts of the world.  It has been a true gift as an educator to learn along side my students in other parts of the world.
